Are you using the Outlook 2003 ADM?  If you are there is a setting under
Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Outlook 2003 -> Tools | Options ->
Security -> Enable links in e-mail attachments.  This has the standard Not
Configured, Enabled, Disabled settings.  For Enabled you have the option to
check if you want to enforce the setting on or off.  If you're not using
this ADM, I would suggest installing it and then checking Enabled and
Enforce setting on.

Under Tools | Option -> Security, there's a setting for "Enable links in
e-mail messages".  Have you looked at that?

I have users running XP SP2, 
 I use group policy to control the users and desktops. I recently
upgraded a couple users to IE7 to test it in our environment. Once upgraded
to IE7 the users can no longer click links such as http://www.google.comin 
there emails with out getting the following error:

The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this
Please contact your system administrator.

I have not changed anything thing in any of my policies; however, if I
pull the user out of their respective OUs and move to an OU with no policies
applied to it the error goes away.

Does anyone know of a setting that would cause this behavior in either
Outlook or IE7 that can be changed to remedy this situation???

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!
