How to Open a URL in Lotus Notes Using the Default Browser

Ever click on a URL that is in a Lotus Notes email and wish that it would open using your default web browser (Internet Explorer or FireFox)? There is a setting available within Lotus Notes to change this.

From within Lotus Notes click on the file menu and then Preferences in the drop down list.  Choose the Web Browser option from the left hand side of the window and then select the radio button for the option to "Use the browser I have set as the default for this operating system."  Then click OK. The next time you click on a legitimate web URL in an email it will use your operating systems default web browser.
