    Outlook hyperlinks (2003)

    Hi all,
    I'm new here and was recommended by a friend, hope you can help.

    I've got a few people at my workplace that are having problems with sending hyperlinks to files on the network. Web addresses are fine, as are email addresses.

    When someone sends a link to a file; (eg: W:adminaccountspay.xls) in the main mail it shows as a link that can be clicked on (blue, underlined etc) but in the preview pane its added < > around the link and you cannot just click on it (NOT blue, NOT underlined, just text) so they either have to open the mail properly or copy and paste the link, minus the chevrons.
    Not a major problem but it works on mine and most peoples.

    I usually send UNC links, such as <serversharepathfile> rather than mapped drive links. Does that help?

    Have you tried the New "Ctrl-Click" that is required by Office XP and 2003 and now 2007 when using MS Word?

    One other random thought. Occasionally I see a notification above the message in the Reading Pane that the links have been blocked, not just the pictures. I don't know what triggers that, but you might check and see whether that feature is kicking in.

    Couple of other thoughts, are there differences in settings between problem and no-problem users in:

    Tools | Options | Security | Zone Settings?

    Tools | Options | Email Options | Read all standard mail in plain text?
