I have tried to send a "link" to a forum page to a colleague of mine; however, his e mail provider is "rejecting" it on "grounds of suspicion " etc ; my friend does not want page sent, so have tried to send just the URL link. but no good. I want his advise on a thread I am involved with on this forum, but am now stumped to know how to get the information to him......

??any ideas please.....

??which presumably means HE will have to manually type in the thing??

Is this about wol's problem? Soz, have tried to reproduce it and no joy. Stumped is me.

If you cant mail the link, try braking it up, and explain how you have (broken it up). eg ignore the returns, and type in as one singel line.

click here

index.cfm?go=discuss,

thread&threadid=155166

&fourumid=1

or do a screen dump, and e-mail him the screen dump, and the address of the thread will show in the picture.

WEll this is what i would do anyway.

Copy and paste then take out the spaces.

It may be that your friend has express set to reject any mail that may contain potential harmful attachments.

Ask him to open the tools of Outlook express then options, security tab, remove the tick from the box that says, "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that may contain a virus"

The existing link he has should now work with out you having to resend it. j.

and, no it don't mean he will have to type it in, as he can cut one little bit, paste that in, cut the nex bit, paste it, etc.

yes; it is to do with wol"s thread; it has me stumped pro-temp; have sent an e mail to my friend having broken up the url, so far it has not been pinged back...:BUT, my friend and I CAN VNC each other, so THAT might be a way to do it.....
