    Can't Launch links in e-mail
    As a newbe here, I am sifting through the maze and trying not to ask too many dumb questions. Having said that, how do I launch a link in an email? I click on it, right click on it, high light it, but I cant get it to open. I have tried in Firefox, Chrome, Safari with no luck. Is there something I haven't turned on? I know it must be simple.
    If It Was Easy, Everyone Would Be Doing It.

    If the link has been properly inserted into the email message, it should open by clicking on it. Not sure I understand why you're using Firefox, Chrome, or Safari to try and open the link? Or do you mean that you're copying the link from the browser into an email message?

    my understanding of your post is "someone sent me an email with a link in it, but when I click it nothing happens." Is that right?

    If so, my only guess on this would be that the link is malformed (ie not the full path, starting with http:// etc.
