I use XP, IE6 and OE6. I get many (not all) subscribed for messages that show references to click for additional info that are not blue and underlined as they should be. As a result I am unable to get the desired info.
Is this a setting on my computer that should be changed? Can anyone help me on this? Thanks

It could be that the email was in a different mode, umm text mode I think. Also it could be that the specific code is incorrect for example:

htp://www.name.com
ww.name.com
url=htp:/ww.name.cm

Im gonna agree on this one. You say it is a text message, so if it is a basic text file, or text encoding, then it wont be highlighted.

You can change it to a HTML email, though it would involving replying or forwarding the email, then change the email format to HTML then you can click on the links. Jst make sure you don't send it!

In fact some sites offer ethier text emails or HTML emails. You need to go to those sites that have the text emails and check to see if they offer HMTL format.
