Are you looking for 'emacsclient -n'?

There is a problem when you have multiple frames, though:  How do you
decide in which frame the visited file will be displayed?  Is it
possible to specify that when starting emacsclient?  --- I usually have
at least two frames for different purposes, and using emacsclient to
visit a file or to create an email usually doesn`t put the file/email
into the frame I`d like to have it in.
