I've got a problem with Outlook 2010 on an XP box. Web links inside e-mails are highlighted and underlined just like normal, but when I click on them, nothing happens. Links fire off the browser fine from other applications. Looks like it's just Outlook that's affected. Googled this some and found a couple suggestions already, but none of them worked, so I might have an uncommon problem here... :-(

Is it possible that your security settings are too high? – variant Jul 27 '10 at 19:19
@variant Make that an answer instead of a comment please! – Brian Knoblauch Jul 27 '10 at 19:36

I suggest you check your security settings. They might be set too high to permit opening URLs from emails.

That did it this time. I've done full browser resets already with no change. Apparently the full browser reset does not include security level... – Brian Knoblauch Jul 27 '10 at 20:09
Glad to hear you got it sorted out. – variant Jul 27 '10 at 20:21
