go into "start menu", right click on the email icon, click on "internet properties", click on "programs" tab, and click on "set programs", it then should come up in a list, and select the one you want and click on "set this program as default"

hope that is of some use to you,
however i do not use yahoo mail, but i am assuming it is the same, as I have windows live, unless you have already tried this.

if it doesn't work then I am not sure sorry
unfortunately that does not work

# Select Tools | Internet Options... from the menu in Internet Explorer.
# Go to the Programs tab.
# Make sure Yahoo! Mail is selected under E-mail.
# Click OK.

donnoif tis what you mean:

In firefox:

select TOOLS then OPTIONS
select APPLICATIONS tab then SCROLL DOWN and look for "mailto:"
change from "windows mail" to "yahoomail!" from the options provided
that seems to work a treat nuabdi
Thanks for the tip I managed to get this to work on mine as well.
I would like to do the same for IE does anyone know how to do that because even though I have changed yahoo to the default email it still opens windows mail.
