Outlook Express can show the compose box by executing it with a good paramter 
line. Mozilla should also : eg.

"mozilla.exe" -mailcompose    - And the Mozilla Mail Compose Box opens.

We are already supporting this but the command is "compose" and not 
"mailcompose".

You can also preset everything from the recipient to the body of the message:

mozilla -compose "to=ducarroz@netscape.com,subject=test,body=hello%20world"

If you want to see all the parameters supported, take a look at 
mailnews/compose/src/nsMsgComposeServices.cpp and 
mailnews/compose/resources/content/MsgComposeCommands.js
