Description mux2005 2007-11-06 09:00:10 UTC
Up to version 2.2, putting the following into

  <node oor:name="ExternalMailer">
    <prop oor:name="Program" oor:type="xs:string">

Since 2.3, it doesn't work anymore. I also tried putting the setting into an
.uno.pkg, but it has no effect, either. OOo always uses kmail. The only thing
that works is to put the setting into user/.../Common.xcu, but I need a
system-wide solution. AFAICS, there is no way to override OOo's standard mailer
on a system wide level in a KDE environment anymore.
