Angry Cannot Send URL Link w/Outlook 2003
Whenever I try to send a URL from the url (file, send, link by email), I get a message when Outlook comes up, at the top of the email that says, "Outlook blocked access to the potentially unsafe attachements, ___. For this page, it was "newthread.url".

It will send, but no file will be found attached when the person receives it.

I went to the Security Settings from the Options menu, and reset everything to either "enable" or "prompt". Still, I cannot send a url page link by email

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Here's what I found. It is a built in security precation since Outlook 98, disable it with this:


Start REGEDIT and navigate to the following subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\OFFICE\10.0\OUTLOOK\SECURITY
and create a new string value named Level1Remove
Now modify the newly created subkey and type in the first attachment
you want to unlock f.e. .exe (don't forget the dot in front of the
extension!), all other attachments you want to access need to be
separated by a semicolon ( f.e. .exe;.doc;.xls
You can also download a more user friendly utility which does the aame
thing at www.slipstick.com

Thanks so much! It worked....to a point. It now sends the url, and I can open it but ONLY after I get a warning that I MUST save it to disk first, or just cancel. Any way to get around the must save to disk, so I can just open it?

Thanks again for your time!

By the way, I used your regedit solution.

Below the URL link should be the text link to the same site (i.e. http://forums.techguy.org/t174439/s.html). Click on the that instead of the url shortcut and the web page will open.

Cheers.

Unhappy No "http" link
I tried again, and when I do, file, send, link to a url, the person getting it, just has the link, with the internet explorer symbol, and he does not have any http link. When tried in the opposite direction, I do not have an http link either.

Do you always have the 2 links? If so, how can I make that happen?

I always have the url and the text link. I use Outlook 2000 SR-1 and IE 6.0 SP1 with all the latest security patches installed.

Since you're already at the web site when you go to send the link, simply copy the text in the address window on IE and paste it into the email below the url.
