Outlook Express Issue

Problem trying to go direct to a web site via a link in a email in Outlook Express.

If I put the cursor over the web link in Outlook Express 6 it correctly changes to a hand but does not open the link when clicked.

Any ideas anyone.

Op system is Win XP Pro, SP2

Make Internet Explorer your default browser. In IE go to Tools - Internet Options - Programs tab. Under Default Browser ensure it is default. Apply and OK.

I use Firefox all the time and Outlook Express with no difficulties both are set as default sites.

Cannot understand why you can't get links.

The latest patches for I Explorer 8 have made it a bit more glitch free but Firefox is still more reliable and the range of Plugins and Addons etc are great.

The Samfind toolbar I wouldn't be without together with No-Squint magnifier.
