Make Outlook default program in Windows 10

We are rolling out Windows 10 computers.  I've noticed the at when i click on on a link that is MailTo and is suppose to open outlook new email a windows opens up to log into the Microsoft email and doesn't open Outlook New Email.  The computer has Office 2010.  

If i go into Settings > Defualt apps > Email I select MS Outlook and it works but I am doing this manually while signed on as the user.  How can I do this group policy so it affects all Windows 10 computers?  I already have policy to set default file associates to open with certain programs such as IE11 (instead of Edge) and .pdf with Adobe Reader.  

Thanks for your help.

I have added .adm to group policy but I still not change.  See the attached picture.

I have also added the following to the file associations file i have created but it does not make a difference:
<Association Identifier="mailto" ProgId="AppXydk58wgm44se4b399557yyyj1w7mbmvd" ApplicationName="Microsoft Outlook" />

Permissions are set already.  All of my Windows 10 group policy settings I can see applied on my workstations.  It is only this policy i do not see applied.
