        Recent problem.

        The links in some e-mails (including AskWoody) do not work.  When i hover over the link the URL shows but clicking does nothing.

        Some e-mails work fine!  e.g. RSPB e-mails are OK.  Lonely Planet e-mails have a ‘read more’ button which used to take me to their website article – but now those buttons do not even show a URL.

        Outlook 2007 and Win10.

        Cannot think of anything to try!

        Best wishes

        URLs should run the default browser etc, but the behaviour may be controlled by the mail app.

        Maybe Outlook disables links on mail it deems is suspect?

        cheers, Paul
