Before i fitted this new hard drive Outlook did not have this problem.

Which is your Default Browser ?? Open your Internet Explorer and go to Tool | Internet Options | Advance and click on Reset. Then open IE and make sure IE is set as the Default browser. Then try to click the link and see if that works.

Hope this helps,
