By default, KDE applications like Konqueror or other KDE based applications do not launch the Linux GroupWise Client when a mailto link is selected.


Within the KDE desktop do the following:

1.  Click on the KMenu Icon (by default in the lower left corner) and choose Personal Settings
2.  Select KDE Components and then Component Chooser.
3.  Highlight the Email Client Selection and paste in the following:

groupwise mailto:%t?cc=%c&bcc=%b&subject=%s&body=%B&attachment=%A

4.  Apply all the changes and exit the Personal Settings area.
5.  Start a program like Konqueror and choose a mailto link.  The GroupWise Linux client should be launched.
