[Evolution] Command-line calls for Evolution


I've waded through a few months' worth of list archives and have not found quite what I'm looking 
for...namely, a way to use a command-line string so Evolution brings up an unaddressed e-mail form and 
attaches a file to it.

Background: I'm using Star Office, which, like MS Word, has a send-file function. Yet when SO6's options are 
altered to use Evolution as the mail client, SO6 doesn't seem to want to do anything more than activate 
Evolution's main desktop. 

Sylpheed users ran into the same problem. As a workaround, someone wrote a Perl script to use as a substitute 
for Sylpheed's activation command in SO6's tool=>options=>email entry. The script takes advantage of 
Sylpheed's command-line call,   >sylpheed --attach . I was hoping to do something similar with Evolution, but 
the man page lists only two command-line examples: one for bringing up an email when an addressee is 
specified; and one for activating Evolution and having it start with the Inbox. Is that the complete catalog 
of command-line calls? Or are others listed elsewhere?

Best regards,
