Users need to open a custom mail client when they click the "mailto" option in a Web page.


1. Log in as root.

2. Run "gconf-edit".

3. Go to the "desktop -> gnome -> url-handler -> mailto" option.

4. In the right-side plane of the window, modify the command option so that it points to your favorite mail client.

For example, modify: /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin %s

Note: Don't miss the "%s" at the end of the command.
