Hi all!
I have a question and if you guys could tell me something I would really appreciate this. I tried in other forums but I didn't get the answer. And how you guys here uses to develop... Here it goes: I work for a company that uses a system that generates a automatic email prepared to be sent. It used to work on Ms Outlook but since we have migrated to thunderbird it is not working. I have read topics here saying it is a bug and we have to use the button to "edit as new". But I have read a lot of posts and I know that we can use line arguments to compose a entire message, for example. I wanna know if there's a command line to "edit as new". I would put this command in an argument in our program to call the screen to edit the message.

Details see   Example 
 thunderbird.exe -compose "subject='abc',body='hello'"

Thanks for asking. But bugzilla really isn't a help forum. See  In future if you do create a bug report, please provide URLs to past thunderbird discussions you have created or read so that we have a better understanding of your issue.
