Hi all,

When I'm sent a website link to my e-mail address via OE, it's inoperative i.e left click and nothing happens, right click and 'Open' and again nothing happens.

I've checked as many settings as I can find but to no avail.

Is there a simple answer please?!



PS. I have XP Pro

Hmmmm I think Microsoft may have changed something as I also used to be able to open a link by clicking on it. Now I always right click on link to copy it then left click in the browser address box to paste then hit Enter (as per suggested prompt - these extra actions perhaps being promoted to ensure you really, rather than inadvertantly, want the site duh)
