Tried the Chrome Web Store? They have several tools to work with Yahoo Mail.

Maybe I need to rephrase this question. When I click on a hyperlink, it directs me to microsoft office outlook. I want to click on the hyperlink and have yahoo email as my default? Is it possible?

Sorry I did misunderstand.

I think this is what you're looking for: How can I make Yahoo! Mail my default email application?

Figured it out. if you download "yahoo messenger for Google Chrome", and restart your computer, it does it automatically.
