My Outlook 2002 does not recognize links that are embeded into email messages created using HTML format.  All other formats such as text and rich text links are fine.  If I go to tools, options, and I select text or rich text, the links that are created using that format work fine but not HTML.  How do I get my HTML formated links in email messages to work again? thanks,

when you say doesnot recognise , does it mean you cannot see an hyperlink as a hyperlink
or
when you click on the hyperlink nothing happens ..

Do you Internet explorer as your default browser ?

Great Questions.  Actually the cursor recognizes that it is a link and changes to a hand when I put the mouse over the HTML link, but when I click anywhere or on any HTML link, nothing happens.  If the email was created using text only and it contains a link using the "http://www.???" the links work fine but not HTML.  I do use Internet Explorer as my default and only browser.
thanks,
