Are you using Thunderbird 3? If you are, there should be an sqlite3
database file called 'global-messages-db.sqlite' in the root of your
profile directory that could be useful. Just as an example, using
DBD::SQLite, you could get the text of your messages with "could not
be delivered" with a query like:

    select c1body from messagesText_content where c1body like '%could
not be delivered%'

Drifting off-topic: has anyone here tried to get mozrepl [*] working
with Thunderbird? This could be another way to do it (but through
javascript, not Perl).
