Description Frantisek Hanzlik 2007-05-11 17:46:42 EDT
Description of problem:

As of the early Fedora releases, there aren't respected mail apps switches
in preferred GNOME Mail Apps settings.
E.g. "mozilla -mail" or "seamonkey -mail" entered as preffered mail apps
launch mozilla/seamonkey browser, because "/usr/bin/launchmail" ignores (mail
invocations) switches.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch in GNOME menu "System"
2. "Settings" -> ("Other Settings") -> "Preffered Applications"
3. In "Internet Apps" -> "Mail client" menu Mozilla/Seamonkey (installed
RPM from Extras rep) not appears as choice, and when added as "Custom"
app with "-mail" switch, this switch is perhaps passed to "/usr/bin/launchmail"
script from "htmlview" package, but isn't propagated to final application. 
Actual results:
Multi-func apps have stripped functional switches and then start in default mode
(browser mode in mozilla/seamonkey case).

Expected results:
Not as too much (why this bug stay several distros back?), but as minimal accept
switches at "Custom" menu option (when desired client isn't no longer
detected among other FC/Extras clients)
