    Web sites can indicate to a browser that they provide particular services. Apparently you visited a Yandex site and they told Opera they provide email service. In Settings it should be possible to clear this setting.

    Now that I'm on my desktop ... it is called "Handlers" and is on the "Privacy and security". You can click on the Manage handlers button to clear just the mailto handler (or other handlers, if there are any), and you can also click on a radio button to prevent Opera from accepting any websites as (protocol) handlers.
