How to Set Claws as Default Mail Program?

http://crunchbang.org – You're right, Ben...  lots of dependencies (I wasn't thrilled with that).  The help file are pretty explicit, though...  they instruct you to change the default mail reader via your system, as there's no way to do it through mail-notification.  So that's why I'm searching...I'm in this jam, by the way, because the program I was using before (checkgmail) stopped working.  It was nice, while it worked.  If I can't edit the default mail client, I'll try what many others have done through conky.
