Link: 3 ways to set or switch your default mail client (http://www.macbytes.com/link.php?sid=20070110105343)
Description:: It seems more like Microsoft than Apple, but in a proprietary twist of its own Mac OS X forces you to open Mai.app to set a different default client. However, utilities exist that can change the default email client without opening Mail.app at all. They also allow users to set a different default email client quickly, which is useful if you need to switch from one client to another. Or if you just like to. (There are people like that.)

One utility that is not mentioned in the linked article is RCDefaultApp (http://www.rubicode.com/Software/RCDefaultApp/). It lives in the preferences and you can use it to control all defaults.
