From GNOME to KDE and back again: old computing habits are hard to break

How you dare to say you used KDE 10 years (BTW I don't believe you used KDE in 1996... KDE 1.0 came out in mid-1998, I guess the first pre-1.0 versions came out in 1997...), yet are unable to tell you want to use Thunderbird? :-)
Control Center/Components/Component Selector/E-Mail Client/Use a different mail client/[type the name of the app, or the complete path, or use the nearby button to pick from the K Menu). The only chance is, KUbuntu is broken in several places, I'm not sure if this isn't broken too.
In the same submenu, File Associations provides a comprehensive tool to pick the available and default way to manage most type of files and stuff, from the file browser (mime: inode/directory), to most Office formats (mime: application/...) to image and media files (image/... media/...)
See? KDE doesn't force anybody :-)
