Microsoft Outlook 2007 is an industry standard e-mail management program. Users of Outlook can send, receive and manage e-mails as well as manage contacts, set-up appointments and task reminders. Outlook also prevents spam through a built-in filtering feature. Some malicious e-mails may contain phishing hyperlinks that are meant to steal user's information. By default, Outlook disables hyperlinks that appear to be phishing. Turn off the disable links in phishing messages to turn on hyperlinks in Outlook 2007.
