loss of hot link launch in Internet explorer 6

  swagger 17:00 10 Jul 2003

Hi Every one

I recently asked for help regarding my problem of not being able to launch hot links in E-Mails

Clicking on the URL link doesn't do anything whilst trying to launch it

I use Internet Explorer ver 6
Freeserve Broadband and Windows 98SE
Hot links do work o/k whilst on any web page

I did have one reply which suggested that Internet Explorer wasn't my Default Browser. This has been checked & reset using the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article but to no avail.

Anyone got any ideas?

Hi Vog

I have tried that one

The page only refers to other windows formats and not to IE6

I am running Windows 98se and IE6

Hi there every one

Pleased to say the problem has at last been resolved

I downloaded Internet Explorer Service Pack One

The problem has now gone.

I suspect it was to do with file association and that the association between Outlook Express and Internet Explorer had been corrupted.

Thanks to all who responded.
