What's the url linked to from the Outlook mail message. Seems like it has to be some page with doubleclick ads (like those are rare!). ->1.0.1
The connection-refused messages are back if you click a link from a mail message in Outlook. Ugh. (Actually, I didn't realize that this bug was still open.) Not only do I get a connection-refused message if I click an Outlook link to www.xyz.com, but I won't be able to manually type www.xyz.com afterwards to access their web page. It looks like the connection-refused status is remembered by the browser. On the other hand, if I type www.xyz.com first, I am able to reach the requested page, and clicking *afterwards* on an Outlook link to www.xyz.com will work as expected, without the connection-refused message. I haven't tested this super-thoroughly, but this is what appears to be happening. Using build 2002071808 on Win98.
Is this still a problem?
