    Tools > Internet Options > Programs?

    failing that, try

    Explorer > Tools > Folder Options >
    Sort on 'File Types'
    Find 'URL:MailTo Protocol'
    > Advanced > Edit >
    Copy the entry in the field "Application used to perform action" to something like Notepad in case it doesn't work >
    then Browse and select the program of your choice.

    Thanks Leif - The problem is no matter where I try to set the mail default, the OWA option is not there - Is it because OWA is browser based that I can't seem to choose it?
