I wanted to change the dafault email application in Ubuntu 12.10. I read that I have to go to System Settings -> System -> Details. However, there is no Details. Is this because I use Gnome 3 or did the option change?

Can I change the default application differently?

Is the file details.desktop present in /usr/share/applications? –  Warren Hill Jul 8 '13 at 13:20
