Details about default web Browser & default Email client


Hi all,
I'm using Linux Redhat 9. i need the details about the default web browser & E-mail client . Mozilla is default one i know. But suppose i download the Netscape and install it. Now i want to set the netscape as a default one, what i do for in that one. Then can i get the default browser details using any shell command or where these details are stored (under which directory and file). Any way is there for getting theses details?

IF you are using KDE:

Within Konqueror select

Configure Konqueror

File Associations

HTML

Move your prefered browser to the top.

What about for gnome? I installed Firefox but had some trouble with it and removed it. But I had let it be my default browser and now Firefox is gone and I clicking on links in Evolution don't know to use Mozilla again.

Thanks,

same question here

I found on redhat that you can go to Applications-->Preferences-->MorePreferneces and then select 'Preferred applications' but this doesn't seem to work in all cases. if say I install mozilla to /home/browsers/mozilla1_7_13 and I create a customg browser launch of

/home/browsers/mozilla1_7_13/mozilla %s

this doesn't seem to work I get errors about mozilla pulling files in from other places. would be nice if linux could solve this as good as Windows XP does....
