Description

14 years ago
If I am sent a link in an email "file://///server/share" (this is for windows
"\\server\share" access), the link appears selectable/linkable, but clicking on
it does nothing.  If I then right-click the link and paste it into a new window,
it opens the folder just fine.  For some reason the email front end won't open
the link into a browser window like other links.

For good security reasons, in fact....
