I have somehow clicked an option that removes all hyperlink information from
incoming messages. All I see in messages in my Inbox are links without any
abiliity to click them. They are viewed as plain text and are not colored or
underlined. I am using Outlook 2007 on Windows XP. Can anyone help?

BTW- I am not one of those too lazy too look for myself. This question comes
after hours of searching for the answer. Either I am alone with my problem,
cannot search well, or have some brain cells missing.

Are these messages in Inbox? Do they have the InfoBar in their headers that
states they've been converted to Plain Text?

No, nothing in the header. It's almost like I remember disabling them a long
while back, but for the life of me, I cannot find out how to restore the
links to a working state. They look exactly like text, no underline, no
different color, and clicking does nothing. Thanks for responding. If you can
help, that's great. If not, thank you so much for your time!

UPDATE: I found the answer.

In Outlook, select TOOLS, then OPTIONS. In the PROOFING section of EDITOR
OPTIONS, Select PROOFING, then choose AUTOCORRECT OPTIONS. Select the button
on top that reads, "AUTOCORRECT OPTIONS...", then choose the AUTOFORMAT TAB.
In this section, make sure that the checkbox IS CHECKED for selection, "
Internet and network paths with hyperlinks".

That's it. Hidden as can be, but it's that simple to restore underline links
to text hyperlinks in Outlook 2007 messages. Yes, it takes far too many
clicks to perform the action, but it is Windows after all.
