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.
