First declare the shellexecute api like this:

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib _
     "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" _
     (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation _
     As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal _
     lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory _
     As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Then in your code, insert something like:
ShellExecute 0&, vbNullString, "mailto:your@email.com", vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_SHOWNORMAL

I hope this is what you wanted

oops, sorry, forgot about that constant, add this to your code:

Private Const SW_SHOWNORMAL = 1
