Set-up Firefox for default e-mail

As if to send a link. In Windoze, Firefox 1 defaults to Opera to do this, but with MDK 9.2 it does nothing. Can it be made to connect to Opera or K-Mail like Windoze? Thanks.

Firefox send link

Firefox, in Linux, at least in Mandrake, defaults on attempting a "send link" to opening Evolution. I have been looking for sometime for a way to change it to KMail to no avail. Firefox is so configurable, it seems to have to be there, but it's not obvious.
