links in emails not working
Has anyone a solution to this problem please?
Our Data manager sends out emails with hyperlinks to files (usually spreadsheets) on a network drive (say the R drive)
Here is an example link:
R:\Data\2012-13 Analysis\Spring 1\Yrxx Spring 1 Pivot.xls
Obviously it does not work from here!
But we are hitting the problem of when staff click on it, IE opens then shows a blank page.
Reading up on it, this seems to be classed as a security issue and so has been blocked (FF and Chrome do not allow it).
So I need to provide an alternative. Any ideas?
We have a similar problem with coverlists on the intranet and for now we manually copy them to the LAMP server.
