Kubuntu: Change the Default Email Client

By default, kubuntu uses KMail as the default email client. Since I installed the KDE desktop on top of my Ubuntu installation, I wanted to keep Evolution as my default email client. I used the following steps to make this happen, but they will work for changing the default client to whichever email application you have installed.

1. Click the K Menu.

2. Select System Settings.

3. Under Personal, select Default Applications.

4. In the left pane, select Email Client.

5. In the right pane, select the Use a different email client radio button

6. Click the button at the end of the textbox.

7. Browse to the desired email application. In my case, I expanded Internet and selected Evolution Mail.

8. Click OK.

9. Click Apply.

10. Close the Default Applications window.
