Using my friend google I found the following tidbit...

The -compose command line argument doesn't work correctly in Thunderbird
1.5 due to a parsing bug. It generates the compose message window but
none of the fields are filled in. The only workaround is to use a
mailto: URL. However, this prevents you from passing an attachment due
to a security restriction.

thunderbird -compose
"mailto:somebody somewhere?cc=address@provider&subject=hi&body=something"

Lisa:	Dad, I think that's pretty spurious.

Homer:	Well, thank you, honey.
