Subject: Re: Security issue in Microsoft Outlook

Hash: SHA1

I must be missing something here.  When I create an email with outlook with<sp> and then arrow back to in front of cybertrion and enter my url ends up looking like
http://www. and that is what get's sent and received by the
recipient.  I'm apparently not doing this correctly or maybe it's in the way you have your Outlook
editing set up.
