If you're using Outlook Express, check the Security settings in Tools - Options

According to 'itsafe' from uk gov. it's not considered safe to open links in emails unless you are sure of the sender.

Just a thought.

Open your browser, (not your outlook express)

Click on tools

select internet options then select programs.

make sure "internet explorer should check to see if it is the default browser".is checked

The next time you use it, it may ask you if you want it to become the default ,click yes.

The trouble is caused by outlook express not finding a default browser. even though explorer works normally on its own , it must be set up as the default, for other programs to recognise it.
