Outlook -computer question

[QUOTE]Originally posted by unkl300d
[B]Hello, anybody know how to copy URL addresses from e-mails in order to paste onto the address bar of the IE5 browser?

Outlook express allowed one to right click the mouse and copy paste. But this does not work with Outlook full verion.
Is it as simple as getting rid of outlook and going back to outlook express or something better?

Please if anybody can help it would be appreciated. My problem stems from receiving Mercedeshop forum e-ails and not being able to open the website from the highlighted URL.
Therefore it has to be copy and pasted to the browser address
bar.

Thanks

Hmm... no reason you shouldn't be able to simply left-click on the URL and it should open right up automatically in an internet explorer window

Thanks Pentoman, I agree with you, but I have heard from other users that outlook is a pain.
My solution is to dump outlook and go back to outlook express.
K.I.S.S.:p

Move the mouse pointer to the LEFT of the URL that you want to copy. LEFT click and hold the mouse button while dragging over the url to highlight the address. Once highlighted, press CTRL C to copy. or place the mouse pointer in the highlighted text and right click to bring up the copy menu and click 'copy'.

This works with Outlook 2000, SR-1
