How to Change Default Mail App Client in Mac OS X

Do you keep switching between different email clients? Or wish that you could easily start your preferred email application, instead of having to do it manually? If so, you can easily change this by changing your default “Mail” app preference.

In Mac OS X, the default setting for email is set as “Mail” app, which functions very well. However, if you have a specific email service that you stick to, you can always make it your default choice.

Step 5: Quit the preference box after saving your email client.

Note: While using the “Select” option (as written in Step 4), you will have the Finder window to select the apps stored in any drive of your Mac OS X. Still, we would recommend to store the email clients in Folder, so that you can easily find it using Applications > Folder option.

After you have selected your default email client, you will always land in the selected email client whenever and wherever you click within the Mac. You can always repeat the above steps to change your email clients or restoring the default Mail app.
