Hi, jrojas1213.

To the best of my knowledge Outlook has no such capability.  What is the link to, a file, a web site, something else?

Is the user on a VPN?  Do other hyperlinks work?

Have they tried copying and pasting the URL to a browser rather than opening it from the email? What happens when the hold down CTRL and click on it simultaneously? Do you have a GPO policy in place that exhibits this type of behavior?
