Hi Diego and Alexander,

Thanks for the tips here. I finally got around to trying them out. Here's
what I ended up with and it's working perfectly.

(defun timvisher-org-link-mac-mail-open-link
    (mid _)
  (start-process "open-link" nil "open" (format "message://%%3C%s%%3E"

(defun timvisher-org-link-mac-mail-add-message-links
   "message" :follow #'timvisher-org-link-mac-mail-open-link))

(eval-after-load 'org

Pairing that with my org-capture TODO Current Mail Template is a dream come
true. :)

(defun timvisher-org-current-mail-get-selected-message-subject
     "osascript" nil t nil
     "-e" "tell application \"Mail\" to get subject of item 1 of
(selection as list)")
    (buffer-substring-no-properties (point-min) (- (point-max) 1))))

(defun timvisher-org-current-mail-get-selected-message-id
     "osascript" nil t nil
     "-e" "tell application \"Mail\" to get message id of item 1 of
(selection as list)")
     (buffer-substring-no-properties (point-min) (- (point-max) 1))

(defun timvisher-org-current-mail-get-link-string
  (let ((subject (timvisher-org-current-mail-get-selected-message-subject))
        (message-id (timvisher-org-current-mail-get-selected-message-id)))
    (org-link-make-string (format "message:%s" message-id)

(defun timvisher-org-current-mail-get-body-quote-template-element
  (let ((body (setq body (with-temp-buffer
                  "osascript" nil t nil
                  "-e" "tell application \"Mail\" to get content of
item 1 of (selection as list)")
                 (buffer-substring-no-properties (point-min) (-
(point-max) 1))))))
    (format "
  #+begin_quote%s  #+end_quote"
              (lambda (acc next)
                (if (string= next (or (car (last acc)) ""))
                  (append acc (list next))))
              (mapcar (lambda (string)
                        (let ((string (string-trim string)))
                          (if (string= "" string)
                            (format "  %s" string))))
                      (split-string body "\n"))

(setq org-capture-templates
        ("twcm" "TODO Work Current Mail" entry
         (file+headline "~/Dropbox/todo/work.org" "Inbox")
         "* TODO %(timvisher-org-current-mail-get-link-string)
:prepend t :immediate-finish t)

Thanks so much! :)
