Links in windows live mail won't open?

When I get messages from someone sending from outlook with a link inside the message, it doesn't show up as a link in my email, and I cannot click on it and open it. any ideas what the problem is??

I am using windows live mail on a 64 bit windows 7 computer.
Thanks,
Bill

Welcome,

The sender is probably set to send plain text.

In Windows Live Mail, the setting is
Tools>Options>send>mail sending format.

It is probably about the same in OE.

If you have the problem on all of your mail, your settings must be changed.

The sender form Outlook is set to send and receive in HTML, an the receiver in Windows Live Mail is set to send and recieve in HTML also. I guess that's not the problem.

If you have the problem from only one OE user, it must be at their end. If you have more than one sender using OE and you have the problem from all, we can try to find the cause at your end.

Narrowed it down.

Thanks.

It is definitly on the Windows Live Mail receiveing end. I had several sources email me with links, and none would open, nor were they highlighted like they normaly would be. I checked and WLM is set to receive and send in HTML. Any ideas?

Make sure that the "Read all messages in plain text" option in the Read tab is disabled. I hope that helps!
