please someone help, this is getting so frustrating.


everytime my dad forwards me an email, the whole email is just links that don't seem to go to anything.  Example, he's always sending me stuff he bought on amazon, but i can never see it... the email is all links and when I click them it doesn't take me to a product.  Emails from airlines or w/e are the same way... if he's just saying hi, it's fine, but any kind of link or picture that's linked and it's a huge headache.  This only happens with him.


I think he's sending emails on his work iphone, which is probably tied to outlook.  It is first.last@companyname.com


I've told him to tell the IT guys there but no results. 


please assist!

What is your email client?


Is he sending html or text?

This one Opened up Fine , but doesnt actually show a Specific Item.

The 2nd Link goes to Amazon , To Login Page:
The 3rd Link Same as above.
The 4th show Tracking Details or parcel order.
The Last 2 Links - shows Swimline 8720 Chlorine Dispenser....etc.
So it may be your settings within Yahoo ? Not Sure....or something Blocking ?
So texts arrive ok , but Url Links added dont.
You could try Copying the Url within Yahoo , and then Opening your Browser { New Page } and paste that Url into the Search.
