In Windows XP Pro sp3

Is there a way to remove Outlook Express as the default mail client and port my
ISP webmail as the default mail client .

I use several forums that have forum members contact info as their email address (johndoe@yahoo.com)
and if I click on their user name it brings up outlook express with their email address already in the
address bar.
Now,any time that it does this, it automaticly downloads any and all of my emails from my ISP's Web mail
into Outlook Express on to my hard drive.

I would prefer that it open my web mail client and leave the information as it is.

By the way: my webmail provided by my ISP is frontier.com (formerly Verizon) local DSL provider .

Thanks !
