Go to chrome://settings/handlers and remove the setting for gmail. It is under Privacy then content settings.

thanks Chapkom, this worked but now the mailto links are dead, how to switch the handlers to Apple Mail? There is no add option in chrome://settings/handlers – tim peterson Apr 2 '12 at 18:13
Give this a try: – chapkom Apr 2 '12 at 18:20
yep that did it, this seems like a sneaky thing google is doing to redirect all your mail to gmail, i never changed any setting leading up to this issue, it just happened automatically one day, thanks again! – tim peterson Apr 2 '12 at 18:23

It should respond to the windows defaults which are set in:-

control panel > internet options > programs > set programs

This will set the mail client for all programs including chrome.
