It would be nice to have a simple way of emailing a file from the Mac OS X Finder using Thunderbird.  Perhaps Bugs 287345 or 316177 are the key to this feature?

Bug 287345 - Can't add attachment using Mac OS X "open -a" command
Bug 316177 - command-line options for "-compose" broken
Both fixed. I suspect this bug is now wfm.

Can somebody on a MAC say if it's now possible and reasonable "simple" to email a file starting out directly from MAC OS X Finder? (like for Windows, we have right-click on file in Explorer > Send to > Email recipient, which will open TB with a new composition with those files attached).
Flags: needinfo?

As of Mountain Lion, this definitely should be added. ML added the ability to right-click and do "Share -> "SomeShareService". So, we should add a "Share -> Email" and open in TB. I'll try looking at this when I have time...

Yes, that would be cool! A similar approach is Bug 606918.
Another vote for this enhancement.

Presumably, other Apple applications like iPhoto should use the same mechanism, but just in case they don't, I'd like to also request for iPhoto integration as well.
