Add Entourage to the Email Internet prefs panel System
Based on the add default web browsers article, add the following bit of code to the same file in the email section:
DisplayName = "Entourage";
Info = { CreatorCode = "OPIM"; };
This should add Entourage as a choice for email applications in the Email tab of the Internet preferences panel.

I tried getting Mozilla to work as the default mail app, but both CreaterCode = "MOZZ" or BundleIdentifier = "com.mozilla.mozilla" just bring up the browser, not a new email message window. I also tried stuff like BundleIdentifier = "com.mozilla.composer", etc.. but none worked. However, if you choose the "Select.." option in the default mail app selection and select Mozilla, it brings up a browser window with, and then opens up a new email message window.. I prefer Entourage anyway, but this should still work someday.

[Editor's note: The path to the file to edit has changed sometime between the original article and today. The DefaultHelperApps.plist file can now be found in /System -> Library -> PreferencePanes -> Internet.prefPane -> Contents -> Resources -> English.lproj. I tested this hint, and it worked just as described. Make sure you put a trailing "," after the last close bracket if this is NOT the last email client listed.]

Proper Mozilla handling

The correct identifier for Mozilla is now "org.mozilla.Mozilla"

I noticed this when trying to make Mozilla my default browser. The only plist I found in my Preferences folder was the one above appended by .plist. Hopefully this fixes your default email selection issue.
