Is there a way to make Yahoo my default email editor when I click on Mailto links on web pages. I go to IE tools and the only choices I have are:
Outlook express and Windows Live mail.


I have tried to do a search in the forums and do not see a solution.

That feature is built into Internet Explorer, which is made by Microsoft, and so I doubt it will let you use a non-Microsoft program for that. I may be wrong, but I haven't seen anyone use anything but Outlook Express for that.

There are several ways this can be done so you'll just have to take your pick:
