Compose mail in second instance of thunderbird

Hi,

I use standard thunderbird for work and thunderbird portable for personal use in the same PC.

When I want to compose a mail with a file, for work I use:
right buttons --> send to --> mail

If I want to make another shortcut for personal mail, how can I make that?

I try to use the command line option to thunderbird portable as that:

\thunderbirdportable\app\thunderbird\thunderbird.exe -compose

but it open a compose mail for work account...

Thanks in advance...

Regards,

try passing the command to \thunderbirdportable\thunderbirdportable.exe If you pass the parameter to the thunderbird.exe, it will load the local system's defaults instead of your portable profile.

I try to pass the command to thunderbirdportable.exe :
\thunderbirdportable\thunderbirdportable.exe -compose

but it tries to open a new thunderbird instead to open the thunderbird compose window, then, it retrieves an error because the thunderbirdportable its already open.

If I close the thunderbirdportable, there is no problem, it opens the compose window, but if I have the thunderbirdportable open, I can't make it because there is open...

thanks,
