Default email client
I just recently switched to linux and not familiar with the system. currently installed ubunet. i changed my defualt email to thunderbird due to a conflict with live email for some reason. thundirbird is my defualt through the browser but on the main menu up on the right the envelope still opens evolution. is there a way to change this option so that thundirbird will open?
Hello and welcome! :)

thancks for the reply Ozar
I tried what ya suggested but had no changes. Im reading the man pages now and learning how to work within the system so i wil eventually figure it out.
Does your distro use the alternatives tools? Run this command to see:
I had to use it recently to force my Fedora to recognize a newer version of Firefox that I had installed.
i will try that. one thing for sure is it got my mind flowing and reading the man pages and figuring it all out. not a bad thing, anyway i just placed an icon on the desk and will use this until i become more familiar with the system, so far i like it
