Email Pop-Up
« on: November 29, 2009, 01:40:43 AM »
Hey all:
How can I create an alias that opens up a blank email window? I'd like to just type in a keyword and have it bring up a blank email without having to first open Thunderbird, then click "write". Any help, as usual, is very much appreciated.
Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

Not specific to FARR only but -compose is the command line parameter to open the compose window

So working with something similar to this:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\Thunderbird.exe" -compose

Not forgetting that FARR itself has email built-in
