    When I am reading my e-mail I click the Washington Post e-mail and everything is fine, but when I click on a link within the page it goes to "can't find the server".
    This is the only e-mail that does this. Links work fine in all my other messages. help!

    Right click on the link and choose copy link (or something similar) and post the link here.

    Possible DNS issue?? If you open a command window (Start > Run > cmd) and run this, what do you get?

    nslookup link.email.washingtonpost.com

    The Post appears to use a content distribution network. I get this (in Silicon Valley, CA):

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: washingtonpost.ed10.net
    Address: 208.94.20.19
    Aliases: link.email.washingtonpost.com
    If you get "non-existent domain," then your DNS service provider may have a problem.

    Thank-You for your quick reply,
    The issue is resolved by simply holding down the CTRL key while clicking on the link.
    I guess it's just like clicking on a link in a word document.
    I'm bad, (go figure)
    Thanks again,
