    I've just noticed that hyperlinks in OE 6 do not work properly any more. I
    know they worked before. Can't remember if they ever worked after installing
    IE7 Beta 2 (2 days ago). Some links do not work at all. Some others open
    "Documents & Settings" for my profile. Below is an example posting that acts
    this way for me.... Anyone seen this?

    BTW, links work properly in my e-mail (Outlook 2003). I'm also on Windows XP
    w/SP2 and all updates.

    The latter is already available. Its called "Restore Last Tab Group"

    Found it... I have FireFox as my default browser. If I change the
    default to be IE7, then all the links work as expected. Any ideas on how to
    work around this?? I will not use IE as my default. If it can't be fixed,
    then I will have to copy/paste or change to Thunderbird....

    G'Day Hank,

    Strictly speaking, Outlook Express is part of Internet Explorer, and so
    work well with that browser.

    You could use the e-mail client that is part of Firefox ...
    ... or Thunderbird ...
    ... or whatever!

    I have problem to connect Outlook 2003 to my Hotmail AFTER Outlook security
    update on Saturday 18-Mar. I remember now, at the same time I uninstalled
    IE7B1 (because problem when installing IE7B2 which I posted elswhere) and get
    back to IE6. I only use Outlook 2003 for Hotmail and Hotmail is the only one.

    I don't know which one has cuased this problem - I've been trying everything
    by unsuccessful. Now I have to use OE to access to Hotmail.

    I deparately want to get back to Outlook 2003 because all my folders and
    contacts are in there. Please help.
