    How to launch a link

    Hi people

    I am just wondering does anyone know how to launch a link from an Outlook client either 2003, 2007, 2010.

    I have tried using HTML Code and Imbedded onenote documents I have even tried attachments such as PDF's. But for some reason shortcuts don't work.

    All I want to do is for example

    \\%PrintServer%\%PrinterName% this doesn't seem to work, however if you go start from say a XP sp3 client

    Start > Run > \\testprintserver\test1 - this would install the printer test 1. I know this can be done via scripts, but for quickness and for the user's convenience I would like them to be able to launch printserver to install any printer of their choice. I even done a layout for the users amonst our two factories to make it easier for them to select the relevant printer. I just can't get any links to launch.

    Would appreaciate any input apart from write a script

    Sorry I also meant to say if it's not possible because of security, can this be done with a document either attached or imbedded?

    CTRL + Click (left mouse click) will launch links that a normal single click won't.

    Hi Steve I kind gived up, the CTRL + Click doesn't work as well. Probably if it was a link to a document or weblink it would work. But thanks anyhow. Thanks to all the little **** bag who abused links I can't do what I what I need. Well I guess I will need to convince the server guy he needs scripts or I need instructions for the users.
