Default Drag and drop link stopped working

In Outlook Express in Windows XP SP2+ or Windows 2003 SP1, the following
features do not work when Tools, Options, Read, Read All Message In
Plain Text is selected (For a quick workaround for the current message,
press ALT+Shift+H)
- Displaying attached images at the bottom of the message window
- Visited Links changing colors (Tools, Options, Security, Block Images
.... will also prevent visited links from changing colors)
- Right click a Link and select Add to Favorites, Copy Shortcut or Save
Target As
- Dragging a Link from the message to IE or another program
=============
- Unscramble (ROT13)
- View, Text Size (however, holding down Ctrl while using mouse scroll
wheel still works)
- Print Selection to print only the highlighted part of a message
- Edit, Find, Text in this Message (the message must also be open in
its own window to use this option)
- Using Space bar to advance to the next message when the focus is in
the Preview Pane

For security reasons, the Read All Messages in Plain Text uses the
RICHED DLL rather than MSHTML DLL. RICHED has much less functionality
than MSHTML and so is less likely to have security holes.

Default Drag and drop link stopped working

I made the changes as you said in 1a and checked as in 1b. I read the
information you asked in 2a, 2b, and 2c. However, those information do not
seem to apply to my situation. Maybe I didn't make it clear enough in my
original post - I am able to open links from OE6 emails in IE7 when I click
on the links. The links open in new IE7 windows sometimes and sometimes in
the exisitng tab of the IE7 window, but it rarely opens in a new tab in the
existing IE7 window - something that I desire. If there is a fix to this that
will always open the link in a new tab in the existing IE7 window, please let
me know.

But, the problem that I reported is different. Before this problem occured,
I was able to drag a link from the OE6 window and drop it in the IE7 window
to open the webpage in the existing tab of the IE window. But now when I try
to drag a link from a OE6 email, the dragging just does not work.

Default Drag and drop link stopped working

I have not selected the Read All Message In Plain Text option. I am trying to
drag web links from HTML emails in OE6 to the IE7 window but dragging stopped
working. It worked all the time until just a couple of days ago.

Maybe the quickest way to fix the problem will be to reinstall OE6 because
that hopefully will remove all the existing settings in the Windows registry
related to how OE6 works on my computer. How do I reinstall OE6?

Another question - is Windows Mail better than OE6? If so, can I install WM
considering that I have Windows XP SP3? Where can I download WM from?

Thanks.

Sorry, but I don't think "dragging/dropping" a link has ever worked by
default in any combination of OE and IE, Paul. Perhaps you installed a
third-party utility that gave you that functionality (but I've never heard
of one myself)?
