Hi,

There is something fishy when clicking a link in Windows mail.

When I for instance click either of the links below (Amazon.com Visa / Business Visa) in an e-mail from Amazon.com Word2007 launches and I get the
stuff as a Word document i.e. I do not get directed to a web-page but somehow end up in a Word document. This is the new behaviour with all e-mails
since last week. What is wrong?
------------
Get the Amazon.com Visa Card or the Amazon.com Business Visa Card instantly and automatically get $30 back after your first purchase. Plus get up to 3% rewards.
------------

Thank You,
Martti

Do you have a default internet browser set up?

You can change your defaults by clicking start, then clicking default programs and changing the settings in there.

Thanks Ron,

I found a solution to the problem on the web, it was
similar to your suggestion.

Great! As long as you're back up and running, things should be just fine.

Cheers mate,
