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
