The following code works much better:

(require 'org)

(org-add-link-type "thunderlink" 'org-thunderlink-open)
(defun org-thunderlink-open (path)
   "Opens  a specified email in Thunderbird with the help of the add-on 
   (start-process "myname" nil "thunderbird" "-thunderlink" (concat 
"thunderlink:" path)))

(provide 'org-thunderlink)
