[thelist] OT: hyperlinks in Outlook not working properly

Hi all

I'm back after a long absence from web development (being pushed into
project management) and unfortunately my first post has to be an OT one. I
shall try and think of a suitable tip for you ;-)

My problem is that whenever I get an email (I use Outlook as mail client)
with a hyperlink in it I can't get the link to work. Clicking the link  will
open Internet Explorer but nothing happens after that. This started
happening about a month ago but I honestly can't remember what I did that
may have caused it. I have looked in the Microsoft knowledge base but no joy
and nothing anywhere else either.

<tip> type="testing accessibility" author="Julian Scarlett" If you're
looking to check if your pages are compliant to at least WCAG level A and
want to see what happens if you turn off javascript,
<strong><em>don't</strong></em>use Opera. It doesn't follow the DOM model as
other browsers do and it's better to use a gecko based browser such as NS6.2
or Mozilla (0.9+) to get a better picture.</tip>

thanks people


btw just been browsing the archives and it feels kinda cosy to be back ;-)
