HYPERLINKS in received mail are appearing as TEXT only in Outlook 2003

Not open for further replies.


I have a computer running Outlook 2003 on WinXP, and,

another computer running Outlook 2007 on Windows7.

Any email received in Outlook 2003 displays any hyperlink as text only.

The same email received in Outlook 2007 displays any hyperlink correctly as a

hyperlink. Any ideas what is wrong with Outlook 2003 ?

Is the message still being received as an HTML message or as a Plain Text message?

Also, do you have a virus scanner installed which integrates itself with Outlook? Uninstall this integration part of your virus scanner and try again; you'd still be sufficiently protected by your on-access scanner part of the virus scanner. For more details see;
