Choosing a default email application

How to tell your Mac which program you want to use to send an Email.

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.


Click the General button.


Choose your desired default email application from the "Default email reader" pop-up menu.
