User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ca-AD; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Debian/1.7.8-1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ca-AD; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Debian/1.7.8-1

I try to integrate KDE with mozilla so I can select a file (or files) from
konqueror and send them with Mozilla-Composer. I'have read:
http://www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/front-end/testcases/cmd-line/
and 
http://www.mozilla.org/docs/command-line-args.html#Syntax_Rules
an I think I'm doing it right (please correct me if I'm wrong).

mozilla -compose "to=annonygmouse@yahoo.co.uk,attachment='file:///home/me/foo.bar'"

It shows the composer window, in foreground (maybe another bug?) and everything
seems OK. But sending the message fails with a pop-up window error saying
something like (translated from catalan to english by myself):
     Failed to send the email.
     Can't open temporal file %.200s. Check the parameter "temporal folder" and
try again.

Could not find anything similar to "temporal folder" in email preferences... am
I wrong here?

My user can write to /tmp and there are about 4GB free.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open terminal
2. Run mozilla -compose
"to=annonygmouse@yahoo.co.uk,attachment='file:///home/jo/renta04.ica'"
3. Send email.

Actual Results:

Expected Results:  
Send email with the attached file.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
