Has Evo (2.32.3) somehow a command line mode to send e-mails using the
configured infrastructure in Evo, for example do something like:

$ evo -t recipient zone foo -a file-to-attach -m "short msg for boy"

You can open a composer window by passing a mailto: URL, but Evolution
is not a command line tool.

That's a pitty and a missing feature, I think.

Why not just use the "mail" command?  e.g.

  $ echo "short msg for boy" | mail -a file-to-attach recipient zone foo

I realise it may require setting up sendmail (or equivalent) on your
local machine, but that's not a tremendously difficult thing.
