Nope,  tried all those variations - two real options; a) you invoke the
package which results in TBird coming forward, but no envelope, or b)
you invoke the binary, in which case you get an error message no matter
the flags indicatin that there is already a copy running. OSX does not
have a shell file I believe (at least not a like unix.)
There is a long standing bug report on this for Thunderbird. It is now
marked as "Resolved Fixed" but doesn't seem to be integrated into
current version of Thunderbird. (or not actually fixed) See:



OK - I posted a comment on that bug and referenced the similar POWERPC
bug that was mentioned there as well as the current issue with acrobat

It seems like they marked it resolved because the underlying open -a
command worked, but as noted by others in October of last year, this
does not always work, and I could get an envelope to come up in some
cases from the command line, but never with an attachment.... I don;t
know whether this is a matter of passing the correct location or
something else, but it is clearly a continuing problem that effects a
broad range of software.
