How do you disable clicking hyperlinks/URLs in outlook e-mail? We have our e-mail setup to be plain text and word as the editor. It used to be setup on our network that no one could click on the hyperlinks, the user would have to copy and paste it into internet explorer address bar. But now for some reason we have people that can click on links and some that still can't. I have searched everywhere to find a GPO setting that would disable it. I have the Outlook11.adm added to our group policies and I cannot find anything to disable the URL click. Also the only setting I could find in outlook is in the Junk e-mail section. But I want to be able to disable all Hyperlink clicking in all e-mails? We are also running Windows XP SP3 as our OS.

But this doesn't disable clicking on hyperlinks in an e-mail received from another person. How do you disable the clicking and opening of the hyperlinks? I want the user to have to copy and paste it into the address bar in IE
