When clicking on a link in an email the link must open, in the background, but the email window must remain open
I.e. Not to go to the new window that the link opened

Reason being - Sometimes one wants to finish reading the an email and later read the contents of the newly opened link

AFAIK, you can't do it using desktop IE, unless you use 2 screens and IE goes to the other screen. It will work in a similar way with the modern IE app (split screens is the only thing I like about modern IE.)
