Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
would you please give me some more information?
I would like to know;
  • What version of outlook express are you using?
  • What operating system are you using? E.G. Windows 98, windows 2000, windows ME, etc...
  • How much memory does your computer have? (or better yet the make and model # of your computer).
This information will help me to better help you.
Thank you.

Thank you, I am going to look this problem up, so it may take a little time.
Are you having any other problems going to a web site?
While you are waiting would you please check that your firewall is not set to block web access from outlook express for me.
I believe that this may be a security setting in outlook express, you may also which to look for this while you are waiting.
  • open outlook express
  • click on tools
  • select options
  • select security
  • look for anything that may stop you from opening a link in outlook express-Please do not change any settings you do not understand, ask about them in a reply.

cooky settings.

I had problems with my cookie settings when I tried to set my security too high for what I wanted to do.
And your welcome, have a nice week end.
