There are two reasons why Hotmail might NOT be to blame for killing links in CNET newsletters.
Second, the user has a firewall installed which is blocking the use of links in Hotmail. The user should check to see if there is a site specific block that can be removed for Hotmail. For instance, if the user has Norton Firewall 2004 installed, he/she will see a firewall icon in the upper right hand corner of Internet Explorer with a gray title "Web assistant." Unclick blocks to ads and popups for Hotmail. Links should now work for any Hotmail message.
