Description of problem:
After setting Mozilla instead of Evolution to handle mail, the shell
command to be passed should be "mozilla -mail" to open the mail/news
window. Currently it opens a mail window.
In addition, Preferred Applications should either not offer Moz Mail
if "mozilla-mail-xxx" is not installed or call "yum -y install
mozilla-mail" to do so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Mozilla Mail in Preferences:Preferred Applications
2. Click on Mail Icon in panel
3. Browser window opens instead.
Actual Results: Opened brower window
Expected Results: Opened Mozilla mail/news window.
"mozilla -mail" forces the mail window to open even if the user's
mozilla prefs are set to only open a browser window.
Where are user/bin/launchmail's prefs kept? There's no man entry or
This is fixed in FC3.
