Using 98SE os and IE 5.5 etc when typing in an URL on a message pane(not in an address panel) or say in a Word document, the URL goes blue OK and gets underlined, but no 'hand' appears when the cursor is passed over. The address will be correct, but the hyperlink function does not appear to activate.

... sounds a little vague, but usually a hyperlink won't cause your cursor or more importantly the software running behind it, to believe it's a hyperlink, until the document is saved as an html hyperlink - what you're seeing is just word-processor formatting up till the point it's correctly formatted as html

Phil,

Try holding down the Ctrl button to use the link - that's how it works in my version of Word (2002)

HTH
