Question: Default Email App

Is there any way to set the default email app in High Sierra other than going through the Mail app's preferences. Since upgrading to High Sierra mail will not open so I have migrated to a different email client however, the default email app is still Mail which causes problems when I try to respond to email links, calendar invites, etc.



Mac Pro, macOS High Sierra (10.13.2)

AirMail doesn't have the option and everything I've found says to go through the Mail app's preferences general setting however, I can't get Mail to open so I can't access the preferences...Seems like I'm in a Catch-22 situation.
