    Some how hyperlinks has been turn off on my Outlook 2003. Now when I click on a link it brings up the "save as" action. I tried holding down the control key and clicking on the link but no good.

    I am using XP Professional with all the latest updates. I have Office Professional 2003 with latest updates. I also use Zonealarm Suite.

    Any ideals.

    the link may be to an app, as opposed to a webpage. Also, try going to tools > options > mail format tab, and make sure it's set to html.

    I checked and it is set for HTML. The links are url's not .exe files.

    Yes the links are underlined and in Blue. But for some reason Outlook thinks that the URL is a .exe file, so the save as dialogue comes up.

    I spoke to quickly. The links are not working again, so ESP does not work.

    okay, that link worked fine for me. Can you click it in the post above and get taken somewhere, or does it try to run a .exe? That will narrow it down to just the email app that is causing issues.
