Bug ID: 369394
Summary: Selecting Default Email client doesn't change
Product: kde
Version: unspecified
Platform: Mint (Ubuntu based)
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: general
Assignee: unassigned-***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@loes.org.lu

After I changed the default Email client to thunderbird, the services menu in
dolphin hasn't changed. That means if you choose a file in dolphin, right click
on it, choose actions, send as Email attachment, kmail still pops up wherever I
changed it in System Settings->Applications->Default Email client: thunderbird.
This bug exists now for several years.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open System settings->Applications->Default Application->Email
client->Default component: thunderbird %u
2.Apply the settings
3. Choose a file in dolphin, right click on it-> Actions->Send as Email
Attachment

Actual Results:
kmail still opens with the file as attachment

Expected Results:
The mail-client choosen in step 1 (thunderbird) should open with the file
attached.

When i add a file /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenu/thunderbird.desktop
containing the lines:
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Service
ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin
MimeType=all/all;
Actions=sendto;
[Desktop Action sendto]
Icon=thunderbird
Name=Send as Email Attachment
Exec=thunderbird %F

a menu entry in Actions is created doing all the desired stuff.
