    Re: (ADMIN) Linked files vs Attached files, and a scam

    I too have the problem that the messages do not have clickable links.  I
    tested using this message as a test.
    
      http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=114178
    
    You can cut and past it into your browser.
    
    When I read this message on at www.fer3.com using the  Firefox browser
    the web address (http://www.freelists.org/archive/navlist/10-2010)
    contained in the message does not come up as a link. Same thing when I
    go to the message using Internet explorer, no clickable link. When I
    read this message using my email program, Thundrbird, same deal. no link.
    
    But, when I read the email message using Firefox to access my email
    account the link does come up! So this shows that the link information
    must actually be contained in the message so why does it not come up in
    three out four message readers?
