There was a similar problem discussed over at linuxquestions a little while ago. xdg-utils ws patched for slackware-current to enable it to detect the mate DE.
Have a look through /usr/bin/xdg-open and see if you can find out which of the commands it's actually running. Hopefully that will suggest a next step.

Thank you very much! I tried the patch referred at comment #8 in accord to Xfce4 because I use Salix OS Xfce edition and exo-open "$1" works better than open_generic "$1".

XDG should be made flexible instead of having it in a way that has to be patched (fixed) for probably every existing and future Desktop Environment and Window Manager.

And, now, I should do the same for /usr/bin/xdg-email...
