Fedora Tips

If you like the Mozilla browser but prefer to use Evolution as email client in FC1 so how does one do this ??.

Mozilla doesn't have a means of doing this out of the box (or so I believe) so I did some searching and found a neat little addon from here which is really handy. KUDOS to the developers of this addon. Simply click on the install menu item, scroll to the *nix area and click on the here link then follow the instructions.

Once the install is finished restart your browser and select edit/prefences and the new mozex option will appear.Check the Intercept Clicks/mailto option and enter /tmp/mozex for the temp directory and evolution mailto:%A?Subject=%S&Cc=%C&body=%B for the mailer. Restart the browser and give it a test.

There are a heap more options to play with and good examples at the developers website - submitted by Stephen Webley
