    I have exactly the same problem on 2 machines using Outlook 2007. It's driving me nuts!
    Clearly an Outlook only problem. I can make a link in Word 2010, click on it and IE comes right up. I can attach that Word doc to an email and email myself. When I receive the Word attachment the link brings up IE with no prompting.

    Please read through the thread again. You will see that the problem is specific to the combination "Outlook 2010 & IE11 & Windows 10." It is not resolved by setting defaults.

    Normal it work if you launch the link from the .DOC file attached (CTRL + Link).
    In that same message paste the link in the message body and when you receive the message, click on this link and not the link in the attachment. You will see that ask you to choose

    Look at the default protocols for Outlook and URL:

    Control Panel > Associate a file type or protocol with a program
    Scroll down to the Protocol listings

    HTTP URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol Internet Explorer
    HTTPS URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy Internet Explorer
    FTP URL:File Transfer Protocol Internet Explorer

    I haven't used Outlook (OL 98 was the last version I had a license) in many years, but there's a fragment memory that indicates OL has it's own protocol set or subset.

    If the protocols above look ok, post a screen shot of the protocol list - there might be an OL: specific protocol ... I just don't have the means to check it on my machines.

    Thanks for the protocol list mtroxel,

    I don't see anything that would help, but I'm working on old memory (if it's not in the list, I'd have to recall what that might be).

    I'm shooting in the dark, so please bear with suggestions I'll make.

    See if turning off automatic hyperlinking has any affect.
    Turn automatic hyperlinking on or off

    Automatic hyperlinking is turned on by default, but you can turn it off.

    Outlook 2010
    1. Click the File tab, and then click Options.
    2. Click Mail.
    3. Under Compose messages, click Editor Options.
    4. Click AutoCorrect Options, and then click the AutoFormat As You Type tab.
    • To turn off automatic hyperlinking, clear the Internet and network paths with hyperlinks check box.
    • To turn it back on, select the Internet and network paths with hyperlinks check box.

    Soruce: Add a hyperlink to an email message
    Is there any way to export an eMail msg to a text .eml file (save as)?
    It might be helpful to see the actual code, but I think it's related to the way MS processed URLs in earlier Office and Outlook.
    Link keeps cropping up from the recesses - MSO had it's own Link definition for URLs ...

    I'm fairly sure that there is a configuration option that controls how URLs are handled in MSO, but .... these are really old memories in an ancient brain

    If you can export/save the msg as a text .eml file and are willing to post the content

    BE CERTAIN to remove all eMaill addresses (sender and recipients) from the file BEFORE posting it.

    This looks promising for the issue

    The MS Fixit link did not open for me, but the rest of the article has a lot of things to try.

    Not true. It also happens with Outlook 2003 and IE11 and Windows 10. I have posted the problem in this forum and in the MicroSoft forum. And if you read the other posts you will see that it also does not work with Outlook 2007. Apparently , the only one that does work is Outlook 2016.

    You might try disabling IE 11 in Control Panel > Pgms & Feat > Turn Windows features on or off
    Restart the machine, then re-enable IE 11
    go through the motions of setting IE as your default browser and see if there is any change.

    If that did not help, see if there is a repair option for Outlook in Pgms & Feats - repair Outlook if that option is available.

    It might just take a registry kick to make this work.

    Just tried it SlartyBart. Turned it off, didn't help. Turned it back on, didn't help. Keep in mind these are on emails I receive. If I send myself and email with a link, the link doesn't bring up IE, but same for ones sent to me. See next note.

    Outlook won't let me save in that format, but it will let me save in .txt. Here's one from this forum, but I don't think that tells you anything you don't already know.
