Email hyper Link problem
Hey Guys,

I'm hoping someone has a quick fix for me regarding this email hyper link issue I am having. When I open up a email I have a blue highlighted link in the body of the email. It happens to be a string of 9 numbers that should lead me to another web page when clicked. When I tap the link with the stylus it tries to initiate a call, it assumes t-hat this string of numbers is a phone number. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.:scratch:

just drag across the screen to select the text and copy and paste it into your browser.

I appreciate the feedback. That will work but I'm wondering why we simply cannot click the link. It works that way on all of the other devices we have.

By other devices do you mean other WM devices or other platform devices?

Sorry, I meant the other Touch pros that we have. Everything is pretty much standard out of the box... except I needed to change the default browser that the device uses to IE. I have made that change on all of our other touch pros and they seem to work without any problem what so ever. I have double checked the setting in the registry and I don't see anything suspect.

It might be that switching the default browser did something to link recognition. I had switched to IE and then switched back to Opera and sometimes even though the links would be blue, it wouldn't start up Opera when I clicked them. I can't imagine how this phone is the only one that has the problem, so I imagine there's something else in play here. Sorry I can't help you more, hopefully someone else might have an answer.

Re: Email hyper Link problem
Actually, is it possible to change the default program that is used when you tap a quick link?
