I always get the Mint start page when I want to open an attachment in Evolution

Postby jjge » Thu Dec 07, 2017 6:09 am

Hello,
I installed Mint 18.3 out of the box, and now I have trouble reading e-mail attachments. If a mail has a docx or pdf attchment, I get a link, but if I click, I enter the Mint start page, not the attachment. I can save the link, and then paste it into the browser, but I suspect that there must be a faster method. How do I set this up?
