Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003.
When there is a link to click on in the Email, it opens fine, but when I return to Outlook I  have a prompt to Save or Cancel.
How can I turn this off?

that's because you open a document from an email and outlook has a reference in memory to this file so you need to close the document after reading this is not automaticlly done

There is a patch for this (the issue described in the patch is a little different than what you are describing, but I had the same problem as you and used this link).
