This is an example of a mailto argument sent to Thunderbird: Shed&body=Picture&attachment='file:///C:/Wallpaper/Christmas%202008/Ruth.jpg'

the attachments never appear in Thunderbird. Everything else works OK. Does Thunderbird support the "attachment" argument?

What program are you using to send the mailto argument from?

No, it doesn't for security reasons, see ... Url.cpp#96
If you want to compose messages from commandline with attachment, you must use the "-compose" flag, see for syntax.
