When I open an e-mail and view a link for longer than a minute and want to close that and open a second link, I get a page stating "there was an error displaying this link". Seems like there's a timer or something. If I rapidly open links, it's fine. It's happened since I bought new. I'm using ME with Outlook Express6 and Explorer6. Help me. This is aggravating.

To eliminate an Outlook problem, instead of clicking on the link, copy and paste to IExplorer Address bar and go from there, if the problem persists than you can look into the I.E.6 options.

I can copy and paste fine. Tell me, which OE6 option do I change to view 2 pages in a row? Aint happening. Anyone know how to change HTTP hyperlink settings in Folder options? Or what the correct values should read that will let OE6 view multiple pages in IE6? That's the problem, not copy and pasting. But thanks for trying E.S.

I don't use Outlook Express so I can't help with that. The copying and pasting was in order to determine a possible problem with I.E.6, which I do use from time to time.

you can go into internet properties and change the homepage it starts up to. that will fix the IE problem. make it go to say. or ,anything but your old startup page. there are some registry entries that may also be linked to it too, but without looking at your registry, i won't be able to help you sort it out. i know when i had msn service, they hooked in there that way. had a hard time figuring why everytime i tried to change it, it reset back to msn's start page til i checked microsoft's knowledge base and the registry itself. there's a couple places in there it can be, and if there is some other program there also as you startup, such as browser enhancements, that could mess with it too. like ugh....gohip.
