I removed evolution from my box and when I clicked my email link, nothing 
happened (not unexpected) Did some more googling and I found a solution in of 
all places, the Mepis forums. The solution is to append the line:
close and re-open firefox, and you're good to go.
If you're set up to use another email client, you may see the path to your 
current client. If so remove or edit that line.
