Email links don't start browser

I am running Redhat 9 and have installed Evolution 1.4.5 and Mozilla 1.6.

I uninstalled the original Mozilla before I installed 1.6 and after the update, links in email don't call the browser. I was trying to figure out how to set Mozilla as my default browser, but the info in the Mozilla help file was not helpful as it calls out options that are not in the actual software.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem and ended up modifying /usr/bin/htmlview. This is where RedHat KDE pointed all links for the web browser. I don't think I should have modified the file, and should have changed settgins elsewhere, but it did work for me.
