Embedded link in email opens two IE windows
Posted on 2012-04-10
We are having the following issue - if a user receives an email with a web site address in it, when they click the link, two IE windows open. This is happening on Windows XP machines as well as Windows 7 machines. Also affects both IE 8 and IE 9. We do have an active directory policy pushing out a default homepage to all users.
The first window that opens is the default homepage. The 2nd window is the site that the email link points to.
I have checked the Tabbed Browsing settings and have tried the settings for Always open pop ups in a new tab, as well as, the setting for opening links from other programs to "a new tab in the current window" or "the current tab or window." It might work once, if it all, but then it goes right back to opening two separate windows.
Are we just out of luck because we are pushing out a default home page or is there another setting somewhere that I am missing?
