Calling up a Web address from within OE 6

  Manie 00:08 10 Apr 2006

I used to be able to click on a web address send to me vie an e-mail and the webside opened.
Now for some reason I cannot do this anymore.
All I can do now is "Copy and paste".
Can anybody help ?

If you are using Internet Explorer try this.

TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS PROGRAMS Tab, Put a tick in the box 'Internet Explorer should check if it is the default browser'. (at the bottom of the window)

It could be a 'popup stopper'. Try closing any other browser windows you have open, then click on the link...

A bit of a guess, but worth a try ;-)

This can happen if you instll Firefox then remove it. It remains the Default option but as it is no longer there you are unable to link.

The advice from Kev.Ifty should resolve this.

I also had this problem after trying Firefox and deciding to get rid of it.
