Description Matthias Clasen 2006-10-29 00:07:28 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #212718 +++

This is an old bug that has come back again.

The shortcut to load the system mailer launches evolution in the mode it was
last in.
i.e. it just loaded the calendar instead of the mailer

-- Additional comment from mclasen@redhat.com on 2006-10-29 00:04 EST --
This is due to 

        # Remove arguments
        GCONF="`echo $GCONF | cut -f1 -d" "`"

Which does the wrong thing for evolution. Removing that line fixes the evolution
problem, but makes thunderbird come up with a composer window instead of the
main window.

A clean solution would require to store two separate commands, one to bring up
the mail client, and one to compose a message.
