Mozilla Thunderbird - Extracting Attachments from Emails

Microsoft MAPI Controls 6.0  Visual Basic 6  Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.21

I am unable to extract email attachments using MAPI from the Thunderbird email client.  The email appears without attachments  ie AttachmentCount is zero.  The code works when the email client is Microsoft Outlook.  Even if I fudge the counter it still does not find the attachments.  Any ideas why it does not work ?  
Thanks in advance
Tony
txtFrom.Text = MAPIMail.MsgOrigAddress
            txtSubject.Text = MAPIMail.MsgSubject
            txtMessage.Text = MAPIMail.MsgNoteText
'
            lstAttachments.Clear
            ReDim strPathNames(MAPIMail.AttachmentCount)
            For ii = 0 To MAPIMail.AttachmentCount - 1
                If MAPIMail.AttachmentType = mapData Then
                    MAPIMail.AttachmentIndex = ii
                    strPathNames(ii) = MAPIMail.AttachmentPathName
                    strFileName = fncDecodeFileName(strPathNames(ii), 3)
                    lstAttachments.AddItem (strFileName)
                End If
            Next ii
 
MAPIMail  =>  MAPIMessages control instance

I'm not sure what you are trying to do with MAPI, but I use this add-on for tb and it works just fine.  Maybe you'll see something you are overlooking.
