Default Calling all computer experts

I have a problem, I use Outlook 2007. Every Monday I receive from the forum emails with links to posts that I have been involved with. For the last several weeks the only link in these emails that is highlighted and therefor clickable is at the bottom, the unsubscribe link. If I forward the email to myself or another computer, all links are highlighted! The same applies to the emails titled "You have been quoted at routerforums"

Help solving this problem will be appreciated.

Are your preferences set to HTML mail...? Rather than text...?

Reinstall Outlook 2007 (on the CD as 'repair', I do believe). That's a quick and easy fix that typically doesn't disturb any of your settings, pst files, rules, etc. but usually fixes things like that. You can spend (waste) a whole lot of time trying to figure out what happened and why so just let the CD software do a 'fix' for you.

I prefer using Thunderbird.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Thanks for that I appreciate it. Tomorrow I'll give it a try and let you know if it fixes this strange problem.

Sorry that I answered your thread, Harry, as I'm not a expert.

I've just done that David and it made no difference.
The first photo shows how I receive the emails and the second screen shot shows the same email after I have sent it to myself.
Whilst my computer skills are very limited, it looks to me as if something has altered with my email address at the forum. Is there any way for the forums computer guy to look at this problem. Emails from other sources with links are all highlighted.

Just trying to help but maybe better posted on MS's Office Forum? They should be better equipped to give you the answer. Is this on all emails with active links?
