There must be some security setting in Win2k which is blocking some emailed links from working in Outlook express. For example, the link to a PF PM when I am emailed a notification does not work. In many merchant email advertisements there are "picture button", ie click on the picture to go to some specific info, these do not work. Also image links in Ebay do not work. Could anyone send me to the place in win2k where I might find the setting to allow this type of activity. I know it can be done and have been looking through the various settings found in the control panel, but no luck so far. Am I going to have to email my son again (he is part of the network support group at CMU)?
