Open Mail (/Applications/Mail).

Do this even if you don’t want to use Mail! Yes, it’s counterintuitive, but, work with me here.

From the Mail menu, choose Preferences.

  1. Thanks for this howto: “set default email application” in Mail.app. Chrome had become the default setting, making it impossible to send an email from inside AdressBook.app.
