is not working only in this special case:

when i call it from my python app throught the mailcap module.

Could be there is something with missing environment variables ...

A simple 'strings `which emacsclient`' reveals:


USER, LOGNAME, DISPLAY are important. Can you launch a simple shell script instead of emacsclient that just records the environment variables it sees inside Python? Like:

        #!<path to your login shell>
        env | sort -o /tmp/EnvironmentAsSeenFromWithinPython$$

Then compare this with that which a regular shell or GNU Emacs' *shell* buffer has.

And in the next round: make that shell script replace the utility that would be determined by the mailcap file – I have no idea why you mention this, because mailcap names a "proxy" to handle a particular data type. Does this "proxy" application launch and for which data type does it launch? Or do you mean that you have extended mailcap to use emacsclient for some data type(s)? Then it would be easy to substitute "emacsclient" with "shell script name" for a test and all is done.
