Bug Description

Binary package hint: kubuntu-docs

Hi,

I am trying to use Thunderbird as my default email in Kubuntu 6.06
(lastest upgrade). In the doc
(https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/kubuntu/desktopguide/C/internet.html), it
is said to change the preferred email client to Mozilla Thunderbird by
doing this:
   1. Choose K-Menu->System Settings->User Account.
   2. In the User Account, click the Preferred Applications and click
the Email Client and select the Use a different email client option.
   3. In the Use a different email client text box, type
mozilla-thunderbird %s, then click Apply to save your settings.

My problem is that There is no "Preferred Applications" to click
(instruction 2 above) in "User Account".

Any help would be greatly appreciate.
Thanks a lot
