[Project_owners] Accessing to mail Headers

I tried so, but it seems that it doesn't work. Those functions only permit 
to get or set items that are properties of the nsIMsgDBHdr object (the 
function getProperty doesn't work properly, it says that it is not a 
function) The getStringProperty and getUint32Property are working well with 
the items that are properties, but not with my own headers :-/

Does someone have another idea ?
If I could get an nsIMimeHeaders object it would be good, but from the 
nsIMsgDBHdr one, I don't manage to. (if I'm not wrong, with the URL of the 
message, I may manage to, but how to get an URL from the nsIMsgDBHdr, that 
is the question)

Thanks for helping me, and thanks for your answer Karsten even if it didn't 
work ;)
