URL link won't open

By bakdet ·
When I open up an email in MS Outlook2000,
A link is available for me to click on and when I do I get an error message not letting taking me to the site. When I type the site in a browser it works great. How come the link won't work in Outlook?

URL link won't open

you need to ensure that the URL is in one straight line and not flow over to the next line, i.e. like a carriage return;
due to email, sometime, the URL is broken into 2 lines, thus not working properly.
you can also try and maximise the email, ifall fails, copy the entire link (including the next line) and paste.

A 404 or Page not Available will often occur becuase the Web site has an error in the link. Not in the characters, but rather the link does not connect to Web site because the Web site malfunctions with that link.

This occurs with me approx 20% of the time whether the link is a single line or mulitiple line. Accept it as part of state of the art.

To avoid embarrassment I type the link, then click on it when it turns blue. The end results will allow you to avoid errors not to be credited to you.
