View Full Version : Cannot open email links in IE8

09-08-2011, 12:26 PM
For some unknown reason my computer, which has had a holiday for 6 months, no longer responds properly when I click a hyperlink in an email from Outlook Express 6.

It WAS opening IE, but no action occurred. Indeed if I dropped a job link from Trademe into the the top field of IE it would not open it unless I had already brought up www.trademe.co.nz first!

I have reloaded OE6 and IE8, and now OE6 will not even open IE8 when I click the link!

I'm using XP Pro operating sysytem.

Thanks for the genius help that is always available on this fab forum!

Close OE and IE. Then try one of these (http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/t211756-links-in-outlook-exress-wont-open-in-browser.html)

Well daahhh!

Don't I feel stupid!

But thanks for the polite response, IE8 now works OK again.
