    hyperlinks not working in Windows Mail

    Seems like I've been over and over this,also searching everywhere. Hyperlinks in Windows mail are not working. Windows Mail and Internet Explorer are set as my default programs. When I get the error , I reset them again as default even though they already are and the hyperlinks will work for awhile and then the next day I try and I will get the same error message.
    Any Ideas?

    Thanks in advance for any advice given.

    Re: hyperlinks not working in Windows Mail

    In Windows Mail, do the following:

    1. Click "Tools"
    2. Click "Options"
    3. Click "Security"

    Now, untick the box "block images and other external content in HTML e-mail

    Your links should work now.
