I have a problem when I click on a Hyperlink in the body of an email in Outlook 2007, I get a connection error.

Its no problem if I copy shortcut and paste directly into browser.

I am using Internet Explorer 7 as my web browser.

Is IE7 set as the default web browser? Click Tools - Internet Options - Programs tab. If it is not set as the default make it the default and then test again. If it is already set as the default try resetting the web settings under the Advanced tab.
