Hotmail Killing Links

There are two reasons why Hotmail might NOT be to blame for killing links in CNET newsletters.

First, the user has not enabled Javascript. Some Hotmail functions require Javascript. Download the latest version of Javascript here.

Second, the user has a firewall installed which is blocking the use of links in Hotmail. The user should check to see if there is a site specific block that can be removed for Hotmail. For instance, if the user has Norton Firewall 2004 installed, he/she will see a firewall icon in the upper right hand corner of Internet Explorer with a gray title "Web assistant." Unclick blocks to ads and popups for Hotmail. Links should now work for any Hotmail message.
