Sorry but the problem is not really well explained. A few questions:

 

  • Is this Outlook client or Outlook web access?
  • What is happenning? You click on the link and it doesn't open the page OR you copy the link and paste into your browser address bar?
  • You understand that copy and paste of a link into a Google Search is not the same as pasting the link into the browser address bar?
