To what list? What application are you talking about?

If Im in a folder, I would like to right click on the file and select
"Send To" to attach to a email. I use thunderbird. There is a Send To if
you use Evolution but it doesnt apply without using some two year old
script that Im uncertain of.

In Nautilus (at least in 9.04 and 8.04) if you right click there is an
option "send to". You have to set Thunderbird as your preferred
Email-Client in Settings -> Preferred Applications-> Internet.
(Or just execute gnome-default-applications-properties in a Terminal,
the window will pop up.)


If you use the right click send to option in Nautilus, you have 3 options:
"Send as"
1. Email (Evolution)
2. Removable Disks and Shares (never used that)
3. CD/DVD Creator

If you want to send an Email select the first option even if it says
Evolution (you are not required to enter an email address in the "send
to field"). If you selected thunderbird as your default email client the
thunderbird compose message dialogue pops up when you click on "send".
Then you can access the thunderbird contact list as well.

Your problem should be solved.

If Evolution is shown even when Thunderbird is selected, I would
consider this a bug. Maybe a karmic user could check this behaviour and
file a bug if it is still present.

Default Right click to email

There is a program in the admin menu that says something like "set program defaults". I am on Windows at work so I can't see the exact wording but I remember this icon. Look for it and see if it lets you switch the default email client. This should hopefully change the send to behavior.

Ah, so the app is Nautilus. I have my email set for SeaMonkey
(System|Preferred Applications|Mail
Reader|Custom:Command:/home/<username>/SeaMonkey2/seamonkey/seamonkey
-compose) and if I right click a file in Nautilus|Send To|Evolution it
does open the SeaMonkey mail compose window.

I just tested with Thunderbird:
'/home/<username>/Thunderbird3/thunderbird/thunderbird -compose' and
that works as well.

Only bug I see is that the Nautilus|Send To| doesn't have a dropdown for
'Custom'. And a search for that probably will turn one up:
<http://www.google.com/search?complete=0&hl=en&source=hp&q=nautilus+%2B"s end+to">

This might be of interest:

Woops... I'm more awake now; both open the compose window, but neither
actually add the file as an attachement. So the bug mentioned below &
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=318052 and
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=356258 are still applicable.

OK, this works and is easier - you just have to remember to select the
'Scripts|sendto' instead of 'Sendto':

<http://ubuntuswitch.wordpress.com/2007/07/09/howto-use-mozilla-thunderbird-in-nautilus-send-to-instead-of-evolution-for-attachments/>

Modify the full path to your particular email client (mine is:
/home/<username>/seamonkey2.0/seamonkey/seamonkey -compose
attachment="file://$NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS"
