Hi Richard, I have downloaded Chrome, restarted outlook and it is still exactly the same.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Yes, but you need to download then install it please
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have installed Chrome - just checking it was running ok, have made it my default browser, reopened MS Outlook, chose an email at random - your last one in this case and clicked on the link with the same results. I feel a little reluctant to spend more money on this problem which has no resolution so far.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
its ok, its optional else we work through it here, remember there can be multiple causes for this so we are ruling them out.Which version of windows do you have?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Windows 8 upgraded to 10. It was all working fine until a couple of days ago. If I copy the link to my browser which was Microsoft Edge I could go through without error. It must be a setting somewhere but I don't know where else to look.

Hi Richard, seems to have done the trick, but do not understand why I should have to download Chrome if I don't use it or was it down to a bug fix? In any case, thank you for resolving this.
