Cannot open hyperlinks from within Outlook emails

by louvaldini1 / November 9, 2009 8:23 PM PST

For some time now, I have been unable to open links from within an Outlook email, but I can copy into my browser. I get the message ?This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator?

If I forward the email to Hotmail, I can open the same links from within Hotmail.

This is not a showstopper but is really inconvenient and can't be a good thing if left. I have given myself full permissions but still no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening.

But can't comment here. Well I could but as there are no less than 4 versions of Outlook I won't be posting what possible settings there are to the 4 or more versions. Please try to make complete posts in the future.
