How do you make Thunderbird the default email client in FC-5

I have FC-5 and use KDE. Now when I hit an email button Evolution comes up.

In some versions of Thunderbird (and other email and software packages) it asks if you want it to be the default package. But in the version of Thunderbird that I have (it came with FC-5) it doesn't ask you, or it seems, even give you the option to make it the default email client. Can somebody tell me how, in this case, to make this assignment?

In gnome this is handled via the menu:

System > Preferences > More Preferences > Prefered applications.

I guess you have something similar for KDE.
