View Full Version : [SOLVED] Setting up Evolution as default

April 28th, 2012, 08:46 PM

I don't use Thunderbird at all - I much prefer Evolution. I have installed Evolution, gone into the Details and set Evolution as my default e-mail (and calendar) client.

The last piece that I need to do is to change the menu that is attached to the envelope icon on the top panel of my screen. If I click on that icon, Thunderbird is still in that menu. I would like to change it so that it uses Evolution.

Could anyone please tell me how to do this?

Many thanks,

Have you rebooted?

Have you rebooted?

Now I have (lol)!

I have attached a screenshot to show the menu. As you can see, Thunderbird is very prominently mentioned. I would like this to read Evolution.

In order to finish things, I installed evolution-indicator and uninstalled Thunderbird. The mail indicator now opens evolution and Thunderbird is no longer on the menu.
