Evolution - open word docs with open office (not KWord)

I'm running Mandrake 10.0 with Evolution 1.4.6 and I'm having problems setting the default application for opening word documents.

Right now, whenever I get an email from some one with a word attachment, the only options I have are to open the attachment with KWord or save to disk, then open with OOo. I'd like to have an option to open the attachment with OOo.

I've searched google and this forum, and have configured my default settings to open all *.doc files with OOo, for both KDE and Gnome, but for some reason, this doesn't effect the options is Evolution.

Anyone know where the config file is to edit that? Or if it's possible?

Evolution is a commercial product (witch I don't have). Contact Novell for support.
