outlook 2003 and hyperlinks

Hello all, and thank for your help in advance

a user with xp pro, outlook 2003 has an email containing a hyperlink.  when the user clicks on said link it causes outlook to disconnect and the login prompt will appear.  I have been able to do duplicate this on my machine.  is outlook sensing that this link could be suspicious and disconnecting from server ?

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?
