Is it possible to configure IE to use webmail as default?

Is it possible to configure IE to use a webmail application as the default email app? We use a webmail application that is not one of the standard ones like Hotmail, GMail or Yahoo Mail.

What I want is to open the webmail application whenever I click on a MailTo linke on a webpage.

Is this doable?
