Making hotmail default not macmail

I'm running El Capitan on a macbook pro. When I click on an web link (e.g. "email link") I get mac mail - I want it to go to hotmail which is the email account that I use. So, following web instructions I open Mail, go to preferences and try to change my default account from mail - so I click "select" and my applications window pops up, but hotmail is nowhere to be found - can anyone tell me where it is?
Much obliged
