In the Outlook component of Microsoft Office 365, when reading an email that contains a link, the link is shown as https://<server><alphanumeric key>.&URL=<URL-encoded URL>.

How can I have the original link instead? I want at least the following:

  • When I click on the link, the linked site opens directly, without making a request to
  • When I copy the link to the clipboard, the link is copied as it was in the email.
  • When I hover the mouse over the link, the real target appears at the bottom of the window.

I'm open to a solution that involves a userscript, but I'd prefer something that works in all main browsers including IE 8.
