If you click on "use another" go to /usr/bin/ and click on evince to set it as primary pdf reader for icedove.




Done!  Problem Solved!

I hope its correct, I have Icedove in Polish.




Icedove-> Preferences-> Attachments-> Incoming-> PDF document-> shows 2 options:



"Use xpdf" (default) and "Use another".  On choosing the later, I am directed to the File Manager, but I don't know where Icedove is located.



Changing the default would do the trick.



(Your Icedove being in Polish is not surprising, since you are Polish and in Poland).  :)
