BT/Yahoo Browser

  manrow 06:07 06 Nov 2008

I use BT/Yahoo's browser as my main email provider. Recently regardless of which computer I log onto, when posting a URL in any text message it no longer highlights and hence do not appear to be clickable as they used to be months ago?

Is this something I have inadvertently selected?

Send an email with a link in it to yourself and see how it opens.
Are you pasting URL's into your email ?

I have just tried and the URL link is not active in the received email?

have you inadvertently switched email settings to plain text mode? This usually means no fancy fonts or styles (bold italic etc) unavailable....

Didn't know it was possible to change it until now; but no it is not that I'm afraid!

I'm not familiar with BT/Yahoo's browser - does this provide web based email or is there an email program installed on your pc?

Yes it is BT/Yahoo's own email browser.

BT/Yahoo browser is based on internet exolorer, have you tried logging in using IE and if so do you get same result.

I dont use BT bloatware myself but just checked on other halfs PC and it works fine.

It's not a security measure, is it? It's often recommended that you don't click on URLs in e-mails. May be an option somewhere to ensure you or your family don't do it accidentally.
