    Are you using the normal hotmail, or did you get squeezed into using
    the new crap, er new version.

    Assuming they didn't change anything in the live version....

    That is a security setting. Some emails can have active content that can harm your computer. By having that muted, your pc is protected.
    If you open up an email and you want to activate that, there is a selection for it above the email text that looks like this. Select enable content once, and your link will work.

    If you want to open it up permanantly, which I don't recommend because it is a good security feature, do this:
    Click on the mail tab on top >
    Options (at the right) > Mail display settings > under "display internet content", just put a check in the button for display internet content, and exit out.
