It is not the job of the browser to configure your mail client -- the browser
has no knowledge and should not have knowledge as to what you have installed --
that is more of a desktop OS level thing.  Asking the user to input commands for
their mail client is not cool, either.

You can configure your mail client in the gnome-default-applications-properties
dialog which is a system level setting that other applications should respect.
