Apparently you can't use thunderbird to send a message from the command
line with the text supplied on standard input.  I don't know why you'd
want to do that anyway; you're not meant to hand-edit the message that
cmail composes before it's sent out.

I think the solution is just to not say
"-mailprog /usr/bin/thunderbird".  There's no reason you have to always
use thunderbird to send mail just because you use it to read mail and
to send messages that you write by hand.  You may have to say
-mailprog /bin/mail or /usr/bin/mail or /usr/bin/mailx depending on
where your distro puts the simple command-line mail client.
