Internet Explorer 5 Tips and Tricks

Hyperlinks Don't Work In Outlook Express

After uninstalling another web browser such as Netscape, you may find that clicking a link in Outlook Express may not work if the removed program is still considered to be your default browser. Start Internet Explorer, goto View, Internet Options and select the Programs tab. Make sure the message "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser" is checked. If not, then check it! Press Okay and close Internet Explorer.

If this doesn't apply to you, try following the steps at Microsoft Knowledge Base Article Q177045 (Internet Shortcuts in Outlook Express Don't Start Browser).
