Change Default Mail App Mac Os

I've been trying to change the default email application on my Macbook Pro unsucessfully.

Dec 05, 2019  Mail client. In order to change the default mail client, you need to open the Mail app. Don’t worry if you do not have any email account set up. Once the app is open, go to its preferences (tap Command+,). On the General tab, there’s a dropdown called ‘Default email reader’. Open it, and select a different email client. Jun 22, 2020  In iOS and iPadOS 14, users will be able to set a third-party app as the default mail or browser app for the first time, a major change that iOS users. Dec 04, 2018  The issue is in OSX if you click on a link in safari for email it automatically defaults to the built in mail app. Only way I have found so far is to setup the account in the and after that I can change the default to outlook. I should not have to setup the account just to change the default to not use that account.

Mac Os Default App

I'm using Outlook 2016 on my Mac and would like to use it for all my email as I use Safari to login to my personal web mail. On Yosemite I would open Mail, go to Preferences and change the Default Email Application in the menu to Outlook. I can do that on El Capitan but as soon as I close preferences and open it again the setting is back to Mail.

On older versions of Outlook you could open the app and go to preferences and check a box there to set it as the default mail app but that setting seems to have been removed.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I work for a university that is using exchange and outlook as the default mail handler across campus. How can I change the default from Apples to Outlook without having to open and setup the account in the first? It's a waist of time having to do both, and before you tell me how great is it is not what we want to use as the default mail handler. If it is editable in a file please let em know where it is so I may make the change across all of our machines as we deploy them.

Thank you,
