Hi Gene,

I understood your initial querstion a bit differently and maybe I can provide a solution to another aspect of your problem. These links inside the mail open up your browser with a dedicated URL. You don't need this, when the mail contains an html *attechment* (IMHO it is not really an attechment in the strict sense). When the mail also contains such an HTML part, you will see the attachment list view button (and also the attachment symbol in the folder content view). Select your mail, then open the attachment list view, then (for me this works under windows) double click the HTML attachment and you will see your MAIL CONTENT in the web browser. You can verify this as the browser's address line should show a "file://" URL which points to some html-file on your disk. HTH!
