    Hiya

    Are you using Outlook for your email, or a web based site?

    I assume that it is a link to a site, or a full site, being that its .htm.

    If its Outlook Express, or Outlook, then your Security settings may be set to not allow html through. Go to Tools | Options. Security tab. Is it set to Restricted or Internet Zone?

    Also, is it an attachment that is being sent? If so, have they tried clicking on File | Send | Page/link by email

    Regards

    Ah, its a link that may say something like this, is it?

    c:\mylink.htm

    Well, it should show up. Has your friend tried sending via Attachment to see if thats the problem?

    Okay, lets try something else, if the attachemnt ideas already been done.

    Go to Windows Explorer | Tools | options. File types. Look at HTM and HTML. If you single click on them, is Internet Explorer what it Opens with? Its detailed in the box below the list.

    Regards

    If your friend is trying to send you a full web page, have them go File>Send>Page by E-mail in Internet Explorer. Or have them just send the link. If they are sending anything else it would be better sent in a different format. Like a text file should be sent txt or doc and an image as a jpg.

    If you send a web page to your HD it creates both the htm file and a folder with the data it needs to display properly. Both would have to be sent and combined in a folder on your computer to display. If there is a link to the C drive it is looking for the data folder and your friend sent only the htm file and not the folder. In that case there is no way you can display it.
