Link Behaviour

In outlook express a link in an e-mail is activated when you click the link. As a result, you can use the left mouse button to drag a link, and drop it into an application that can deal with it. Great.

In outlook, however, it seems the link is activated on the mouse down. Even if you keep the mouse button depressed, in order to drag, it still executes and no drag happens.

Is that the only possible behaviour or can it be changed? If so, how?

25 points for sorry - can't be done. 100 for a solution.
