This is my parents' computer.

GNOME seems to be configured correctly, because when PDF files are on the desktop, when I click them, they are opened in evince. This is correct.

However, when they to open pdf file attached to an email (theirs MTA is Icedove), I am only asked to determine the directory where they are supposed to be saved, instead of opening them in evince.

I would like to reconfigure Icedove so that PDF files are opened by evince. I just failed to figure out how to do that. Maybe they gave wrong answers in some dialog boxes, when they appeared; I do not know.
