Manual linking to Mail.app using message://

Being able to link back to emails on my Mac (Mail.app) is a very important part of my workflow, so I was surprised to see that links such as evernote:/// becomes clickable in Todoist, when links such as message:// does not.

This is what I'm talking about:

I also tried to create a task like this:

"email":(message://%3c0000014401d4XXXXXXXXX-4b59-9e7b-5a0ef4e62967-000000@email.amazonses.com%3e")

It becomes a link, but when I click on it, Todoist adds "http://" as a prefix, which breaks the link. Copy/pasting the message:// URL directly into Safari will take me to Mail.app and open up the email message just fine. But when you add http:// to the front (Todoist does this automatically it seems, I cannot find a way around it), the link no longer works.

Before I ask for a refund (still in my 30 day money back period), I wanted to ask if you have plans on supporting message:// links in tasks anytime soon, so I can just stick with my current tasks management app a few more weeks, before moving all my stuff over to Todoist?

Thanks.
