Make Outlook your default application for e-mail, calendar, and contacts

You can make Outlook open automatically when you click a link to send e-mail (sometimes called a "mailto" link) in a document or on a Web page. Similarly, you can make events and contacts open in Outlook when you open them from the Finder or the desktop.

  2. Under Personal Settings, click General General Preferences button.
  3. Under Default application, click Make Default.
