It would have been helpful if you had disclosed what your preferred email
service is. If your only email service is a free Yahoo account that you
access via your browser, that is pretty limiting, but you might try their
procedure for setting Yahoo's webmail as the default in Vista:

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/classic/settings/settings-10.html

Any problem with that procedure should be referred to Yahoo, but
with a free email account the amount of help you get from the provider
usually matches what you pay them.

In the long run you would be better off using a supported POP email
account provided by your ISP.

You seem to be a different individual than the one I was responding to
("Barry"), so I'm not sure how much of Barry's problem statement applies
to you. Obviously the email provider is different.
I am guessing that you only use AOL mail through their special portal, or
via a web browser? I am not aware of AOL releasing a fix that will set up
their webmail as the default email service in Vista. You would have to ask
their tech support about that.

AOL does make it possible to send and receive email through a standard
email client like Windows Mail. See
