Program defaults in KDE

yea i still think i'm a bit of a noob. anywho... how do i get thunderbird to be the default program in kde? i set it in the normal place, but whenever i see an error where an mailto email pops up, its G.D.F. Kmail! also, i'd switch from GAIM to Kopete if it would let me set my font colors. sure they change on my screen, but my friends assure me that its always black on white when i IM them in kopete. I'd only switch to kopete b/c MSN stopped working in GAIM and still does in Kopete. thats another thing. GAIM isn't on the list when i try to tell KDE to use it as my default program! What's with these KDE mess-ups? (i dont care for GNOME so dont try to switch me lol.)
