Description of problem:
This is a feature request for nautilus-sendto to provide additional options on the command line. The purpose of this is to allow for a tool to be created to send an email using the default mail client.
nautilus-sendto has related bug 659762 which blocks this bug from being worked on, but if it's fixed, one could conceivably create a Nautilus context menu entry that can be statically set up to run this command:
nautilus-sendto --send-as email --send-to firstname.lastname@example.org $*
The end result would be a user could in just a couple of clicks send a file to a predetermined recipient right from a Nautilus window.
Ideally, the other options such as Bluetooth sendto and Brasero compilation could be built into this command.
The appropriate alternative to this method is xdg-email to send this, but it can't handle attachments. I am filing a separate bug for that and I will place a comment in this bug referring to that one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
To clarify, if you specify an attachment for Thunderbird with xdg-email, an error is displayed.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated

This would be a feature request to be considered upstream. This isn't going to get added to RHEL 6, sorry.

this decision by reopening this request.
