Thanks. So you have to use Nautilus to get the expected behaviour in
Evolution. Maybe this should be mentioned in the Evolution Users Guide.
I did not find it there or with a quick Googling either.

The file-type-to-application linkage applies to all the GNOME desktop
apps, not just Evolution.  Evolution basically just asks the desktop
environment "Hey, I have an attachment with this file type.  What can I
open it with?"  But you're right, it wouldn't hurt to mention that in
the User Guide.

Nautilus provides the graphical interface for managing those file type
associations at the moment.  Granted, it's a little too hidden.  And
other apps like Evolution ought to be able to reuse that window so you
don't have to save first and go to Nautilus.  It's a known issue.

Moreover, GNOME should learn what .docx files are by default are so you
don't have to screw around with any of this.  I'll ping the appropriate
