mailto links not working

When I click on a email link on a website I get the following error message:

Failed to execute default Mail Reader
Input/output error

Happens in Firefox and Chromium, and I have tried lots of links and it's done it on every one.  My mail client is Evolution and exo-preferred-applications shows this as the default reader.  System details are:

Kernel        : Linux 4.19.0-18-amd64 (x86_64)
Version        : #1 SMP Debian 4.19.208-1 (2021-09-29)
C Library    : GNU C Library / (Debian GLIBC 2.28-10) 2.28
Distribution    : BunsenLabs GNU/Linux 10.5 (Lithium)

Any ideas please?

Re: mailto links not working

In firefox, goto about:preferences.
Scroll down to Program, check setting for "mailto".

In chromium go to chrome://settings/handlers
