Thanks for prompting me to be more precise. When my OS starts I launch a server 
with the autostart `emacs-client` command, and have the line in my .emacs to 
ensure the server is started. As it should, opening any number of new frames 
(or launching emacs-client again) will share the same buffer list, etc. 
However, this shell script for launching an email (apparently) starts a new 
server; it isn't sharing anything with the other frames, and if I don't 
`kill-emacs` I end up with two servers running. Clearly, not acceptable.
