    Outlook 2003 blocking URLs

    I have a friend at home running Outlook 2003 and it's rejecting emails to him containing URLs. I sent him an email with a URL that had a subdomain (http://lanparty.whproductions.com)... but I just tested with a normal URL and it rejected that too.

    Anyone know a way to stop it from rejecting emails with URLs??

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    It is seeing your url .com the same as a .exe or .bat and blocks it.

    Try appending a slash to the URL:
    http://lanparty.whproductions.com/

    (Obviously, even if that works, it's just a workaround and not a solution.)

    No dice. I've tried all variations of the URL.

    Well, since it's not me, I don't want them screwing with the registry. And either I can't find the "Outlook Security Template" or it doesn't exist.
