    Hyperlinks in mail don't work any more (2000)

    Any hyperlinks in my emails no longer work. Clicking on them brings up Internet Explorer as usual, but the browser stays resolutely blank - not even a home page or a 404. The browser works normally on its own - for example when I type in the URL manually, or click on links in web pages. It's just that any hyperlink in the email doesn't work, so I presume I must have altered some settings or others in email options. But I can't possibly think what it might be. Any help gratefully appreciated.

    I'm using IE 6 and Outlook 2000, on a Windows 2000 machine, with a proxy server on an NT network. .

    Perhaps it is a flaw in the command string associated with the URL file type? Take a look under:

    Windows Explorer, Tools>Folder Options...>File Types tab>URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol>Advanced...>open>Edit...

    What do you have?

    That's similar to what I remember seeing under URL alone (as in MyFavoriteSite.url). I don't think it's quite the same as clicking a link (but then, I haven't installed a process watcher to be certain). Does your version of Windows list the longer URL handler pictured above (that picture is from Windows XP Pro)?
