Outlook 2007 via Citrix XenApp does not open hyperlinks.

I'm having a strange problem which I'm surprised hasnt been flagged up by user already but still, it's happening.

When attempting to follow a hyper link in an email from Outlook 2007 (which is published from the Citrix server) it does not open Internet Explorer and open the website. Instead it does nothing.

Testing only on Thin Clients it happens across the entire system.

The IE I am expecting to open is IE7 which is installed on the thin clients locally - Internet Explorer is not published from Citrix.

Is there anything that may be stopping these links from working?

do you get the same symptoms if you were to test this as an admin account? I am unsure if the hyperlink will map down to your local client machine as you are technically still running the hyperlink within a citrix session and therefore may also need IE to be published (check your citrix servers processes as your testing to see if an IE window is opening within citrix but not appearing for your users)

I am digging around to see if there are specific settings which would allow this to work, could you let me know which xenapp version you are running?

IE is going to open on the remote server, not on the client, That is for sure.

You don't need to publish IE to get it working, just see that IE is fine on the server, and that the user can run it without issues, i'm sure it has to do with IE Enhanced security.
