The fix it seemed to fix the access issues but now.....If i get an e-mail through outlook, and if I click on an e-mail link that is within the message (NOT REPLY OR REPLY ALL), I get a blank e-mail message to fill in in MSN instead of Outlook.

Check Tools>Options>Other
Make sure Outlook is set as the default mail client
