Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Recently in natty, Thunderbird disappeared from the 'Preferred
Applications' control panel. If I go to System -> Preferences ->
Preferred Applications, Evolution is selected as the current mail
reader, and Thunderbird isn't available in the drop-down, even though it
is installed.
