moderated [External] : Re: Jaws and links within emails

If I know that the message is in HTML, I've always been able to use the links list without any issues. When not in HTML, I can always use the Forms list, I can find the link and press enter twice and I've always gotten that to work. The only time I have any issues is if my focus is not in the body of the email.
I've always found both of these methods successful. I'm using the latest version of JAWS2021, including today's update and Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.12527.21504.

Subject: Jaws and links within emails

Hi all,
I've had an issue on and off that when I click on a link within an email I'm taken to the subject of the email and not the webpage that the link is for.
This
is extremely annoying especially when it happens with verification emails, is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening in the future? I've tried changing the format that email messages are displayed in, but this hasn't made any difference, I know someone told me that when I'm on a link I can bring up the context menu and get something that says open hyperlink or something, but I've tried this and have not yet found such an option. I'm running the latest versions of Jaws, Edge, Office 365 and Windows 10. Look forward to any help anyone can provide me, everyone's help is always much appreciated!!!! Thanks Madison
