Outlook Express links problem

By Greg Talbott ·
After recently clearing temp internet files in WinXP & Internet Explorer the outlook express underlined links will not open automatically. I can open them only by saving link and pasting into IE address bar.
Any suggestions?

if you have hotbar installed remove that program.
I had encountered that problem once.

Most likely the member needs to configure the Mail To URL. The steps to do this are as follows.

01. Click on the start menu, click on programs, then click on Windows Explorer.
02. Click on the VIEW menu.
03. Choose the File Types tab
04. Pick the extension you want to modify. ex. URL Hypertext Transfer Protocol URL: MailTo Protocol
05. Click on the EDIT button
06. Click on the EDIT button on the new screen
07. Click on the BROWSE button
08. Find the new application that you want to use.
ex. C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe
09. Click on the OPEN button
10. Now click on the next 3 OK buttons.

This should take us back to the windows explorer and the extension should now open with your new application.
