It may be security. Some systems classify internet shortcut links as dangerous attachments. They'll let the text through but the underlying URL is stripped out. In my office, my settings don't matter, central security determines what's allowed.

Could your e-mail service have changed their settings? Some have a habit of rolling out new security features with user settings enabled by default. Or is it possible that the sender(s) or their e-mail service have changed their settings?


You could have someone who knows their outgoing isn't filtered send you a link (I can't from where I am because my outgoing is filtered). Then check your e-mail account using web access to bypass OE. If it's OK, then check your e-mail using OE. That would help determine where the problem lies.
