How to escape from Evolution and have Thunderbird be my default email
When I started I took the defaults and ended up with Evolution.
I have never managed to get it set up to send. It and godaddy are on diffferent planets.
Having used Thunderbird in the past, I downloaded it and it automagically set itself up to send and receive.
So now I use Thunderbird - BUT - when I click on a link in an html page - the mailto macro sends me to something other than THunderbird - perhaps Evolution - and nothing gets sent.
So how do I tell the system that when i click a mailto in firefox I want Thunderbird?
PS I think I found it. In firefox - edit - preferences - applications tab - mmailto - it said Evolution. I changed it so say /usr/bin/thunderbird - will now test it.
YES - Seems that asking a question triggers my brain on how to resolve it. Sorry to waste your time.
