It appears that whatever it's set to is somehow corrupted.  Maybe the 
file pan stores the info in is itself corrupted.

The file in question is preferences.xml, in your pan data directory 
(~/.pan2 by default).  The XML settings in question should be string 
values.  In my copy here, the string values start on line 77 and continue 
thru line 98.  The specific mail settings are on line 88 (name='mailer-
mode' value='kde' in my case) and if mailer mode is set to custom as it 
likely is or should be for you, line 81 (name='custom-mailer' 
value='thunderbird' is my setting here, and I think the default since I 
use kde mode and thus probably have never changed the custom value).

You probably want to make a backup copy before you try editing it so you 
don't screw things up even more if you make a mistake, and be careful 
when editing that you keep the same format, so you don't mix up the xml 
formatting.  Use your favorite text editor.


BTW, I see some news about the GPO that might interest you.

Transparency advocate campaigns to lead the GPO

If you wish to discuss it, mailing me offlist is probably best as it's OT.
