How to open hyperlinks in Outlook 2007 without IE8?


I would like to know if it is possible to open hyperlinks in Outlook 2007 without installing IE8?

When I try to open a hyperlink from outlook message I get the following message:

"This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

What browser are you using? There are different reported fixes for different browsers.

Simplest reported fix -
Control Panel
Default Programs
2nd option - default protocols
scroll to bottom
select http, etc and choose appropriate browser

I am using Firefox v3.5.3
and that did not solve the problem...

the default protocol for http is Firefox.
Outlook might be set to use the (restricted sites) security option in the Internet Options.
