    I want to disable mailto links from automatically opening up mail.app when I click them. Is there a way to do this?

    You can change what app opens, but I don't think you can disable this. At least AFAIK.

    How do I change it? In 10.3 I see no option for default mail app in Safari's prefs.

    I'm on 10.4 but I think 10.3 is the same. Interestingly, you set it in Mail's preferences..."General" pane.

    You are correct. The default mailer is set in Mail.app.
