Links do not work in Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express

by phxhawk / November 26, 2004 8:40 AM PST

The only way I can access links in C|Net email or other emails that have links in them, is to cut and paste to Microsoft Word.

I just upgraded to XP Pro and have SP2 installed. I did not have this problem win I was running Win2k.

Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have a pop-up stopper?
Try turning it off.

The only popup stopper I'm using is the one that is in XP Pro.

David, you were absolutely correct! It is the "PopUp Blocker" in XP PRO that had created the problem.

thanks so very much Happy
