Try a test of your own and see if it works. It is possible the mail address was not formed correctly and it may not be an Outlook problem. Any version of Outlook back farther than I can remember can properly click an email address.

If you do a test and it is wrong, try an Office Repair from Programs and Features.

I believe when he configured hyperlink on his outlook, he misconfigured it.
Because you can configure Hyperlink on outlook and put on those fields anything you want

Probably something like that, and so probably it is not an Outlook problem as I noted earlier.
