All of a sudden, whenever I click on a link in an email message, instead of taking me to that web page, I stay in the email message and have to manually close out of outlook. Then in the bottom of my page, I will find the linked web page minimized. Why don't I automatically go to the web page (maximized) as I used to? And how do I fix

Outlook Express looks to IE to control and open any hyperlinks that may be embedded in an E-mail message. Sometimes the communication between OE and IE becomes corrupt. I do not have a specific registry key or setting that will fix your problem, however I would suggest that you try a repair of IE and see if that fixes the hyperlink problem.
Hopefully you are using IE and your version of IE is 5.x or greater. If it is not then the below will not work.
Go to the control panel and find the add-remove programs.
Scroll through the programs till you find Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.x (whatever version you have) highlight it and click remove. When the popup box appears select repair and allow it to do a repair. Once done restart your system and try a hyperlink in OE now.
That is about all I can think of doing. Maybe others may have an idea.
Keep us posted on your progress.
