Hi friends,
I would like to to set Seamonkey Mail as default email client on Gnome Shell environment.

If I go to Gnome Shell preference now I can see as default browser Seamonkey and as default Email client Seamonkey too.
This is wrong because if i try to send from an application (for example simple scanner) any attachment this go to the Seamonkey browser and not to the Seamonkey email client.

Do you have already experienced this situation?

many many thanks!

Create a shell script that starts SeaMonkey as Mail:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
/full/path/to/seamonkey -mail $@

(replacing /full/path/to with the actual directory containing SeaMonkey)

Make sure you have execute permission on it.

Can you make that your default email client?

Same way you already did it setting SeaMonkey.
