Hi,
I have a problem with my Outlook Express. I dont know when it happened though. I was clicking on a link, it turned to purple right after I clicked (which is normal). Then when I went to read other message then come back to the email with the link that I have clicked. It shows up blue... normally, it is supposed to be purple because I have already visited
Anyone know what is wrong with it?
Thanks
I apologize if this question has been asked. (I did a search, but didnt find similiar posts...thanks)

Some websites set their own visited links html, however to make sure

Open Internet Explorer

Click Tools |Internet Options | General tab

Click Colors.

Change the colors in the Links for Visited and Unvisited sites to whatever required

Just that one isolated email? Or does it happen to all of them?

I checked this. The color set is correct. Thanks anyway.

It happen to all the emails. And also all the email client software (not only Outlook Express, but also Incredimail)
Thanks

While I can't come up with something specific...install or uninstall of another program could be at fault. Here are things to check about hyperlinks not working. Not sure what version of Windows you have....could be related to
URL:File Transfer Protocol in this MS sheet.

Hi, thanks for the link! I use the "repair" option that IE has, and after I restarted my computer, my OE is working! Unfortunately, if I set my default browser to Opera (I prefer Opera more than IE), the same problem will occur again =( But anyway, OE is working when I IE or Avant Browser.
Thanks a lot for helping! Even though I don't know why it happens when IE isn't default browser :p
