no hyperlink response toMouse click
When trying to follow a hyperlink in an incoming e-mail, I left click the hyperlink but nothing ever happens. If I retype that hyperlink in the "address" block of IE, the transfer is completed. This happens only in IE but not another browser.

I assume that your reading your mails with Outlock.

You'll need to go Show/View (dont know wich one, Ive got the swedish version)
Anyway: Show/View -> Layout And uncheck the preview window.

Fomr there on you'll have to open each email in a new window and then allow contents. That might be the problem wich blocking your links.

Thanks but I'm using Outlook Express, although I'll try your solution.

when you hover over the link, does it look like a link to be visited, i.e., does a hand appear?

Yes - the hand does appear but there is no response to the mouse click.

1. Open My Computer and click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
2. Click the File Types tab.
3. Select URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol in the list of registered file types.
4. Click the Advanced button (Windows XP), or the Edit button (other versions).
5. In the list of Actions, select open and then click the Edit button.
6. The Application used to perform action box should contain this, including quotation marks:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -nohome
If instead it contains a short name version of that path, or an incorrect path, change it to the above.
7. Click OK, click OK.
8. Repeat steps 3-7 for the file type URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol with Privacy.
9. Click OK to close the Folder Options window.
