Yes, the default email application is only used when the “calling”
application uses the `mailto:` URL scheme. Some applications use
Applescript to communicate with a hardcoded email client. In some cases
it is possible to replace such a script to call MailMate instead of
Apple Mail. This was true for iCal on Lion, but it changed on Mountain
Lion where this no longer seems to be possible :-(
