View Full Version : Links don't work

07-06-2007, 04:40 PM
I do not appear to be able to make the "links" to sites work when I recieve them in an email. I click on the link and wait but nothing appears on the screen.
I am running Xp with Zone Alarm,Spy Sweeper amd Spybot search and destroy.
I suspect that I need to configure one or more of my virus and spyware apps.

Can anyone help me with this

Whats your default email client??

Have you made another program (besides Outlook Express, if this is what u use), the default program for email.?

My default program is Outlook Express 6 and I don't think I have another email program

Tried holding down ctrl and then click on the link? Sometimes the email client wants that, although i don't think that's the case in OE6.

Hi I have the same problem. Seems to have happened since last update to Outlook and Outlook Express. I've even shut down Zone Alarm (a risk I Know) but no success. A work around is to copy and past to IE or firefox. Can anyone help us.

I found it, I found it and it wasn't in the Yellow Pages.
I fixed the problem by resetting Outlook as the default email program by going to Start/All Programs/Set Program Access and Defaults as mentioned in another thread. Thanks to whoever it was. My embarrassment is purple/pink. One to remember.
