how to change the browser Evolution uses

My RH 9 system's Evolution e-mail client loads up URLs in Mozilla 1.2 when I click on one that is contained in an e-mail message. How do I change that behavior to another browser? For example, I installed Mozilla 1.4, and also Firebird. What if I want all http links in e-mails to open in Mozilla 1.4? Or Firebird?

Easily done......If you're in KDE then bring up a terminal/console window and type gnome-control-center then click on advanced and go into preferred applications and that way you can choose which is the default browser for gnome based applications, which Evolution is. If you're using Gnome all you have to do is go into Gnomes control center right from the menu.

If any of this is confusing or you need more help just post and I'll help.
