    Why can I not open up a link in my outlook express. Is there a setting I have to tweak. The curser hovers over it but it wont let me click it to open. Frustrating, Cheers, Nev.:confused:

    Are you sure it is a link and not just a website address? If the sender uses "plain text" instead of HTML, a web address such as http://forums.techguy.org will appear as text.

    Also, in OE
    In the "inbox", left click "tools". Left click "options". Left click "read" tab.
    Is "read in plain text" selected?

    Make sure your settings are correct as Rainforest advises. It may be as simple as a setting.
    Now if settings are all correct , and OE still fails to open links , try this >>>
    1. Quit all programs that are running.
    2. Click Start, and then click Run.
    3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
    4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.
    If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below): • Shdocvw.dll
    • Actxprxy.dll
    • Oleaut32.dll
    • Mshtml.dll
    • Browseui.dll
    • Shell32.dll
    This of course is to be done after following Rainforests suggestions.
    I have run into this problem more than once, and after eliminating other causes , this has always worked.
    best of luck >f
