To launch the composer in Geary, specify a mailto: URI on the command-line:

$ geary

It's not listed in the --help, unfortunately. That's ticketed at

In short, it doesn't have, at least for now.

To see list of available commands, you can run

geary --help

Also I haven't found any useful information on Geary Website or Gnome Website

But as Official Website says

Geary is still in early development.

So there is possibility that this feature will be added in future releases. If you want to get more information, you should visit geary-list
