Problem with attaching files in Outlook Express when trying to browse through a desktop shortcut

I have a user that uses Outlook Express. She is trying to attach files that are located on a network drive. To access this drive she uses a shortcut that she created on her desktop. Now when using OE to attach one of the files on the network drive, she tries to browse to the file in the "Insert Attachment" window in OE using the shortcut on the desktop. But instead of browsing to the drive, OE attaches the shortcut file (*.ink) instead. This is a new problem for her and she claims that it was working fine before. Attempting this on my machine, I find the same problem occurs in OE, but not in the full version of Outlook. What would have caused this to change for her? And what can be done to change it so it works in OE? Is there a registry setting or an option in one of the menus that can be changed?
