    FYI, it's near impossible to rename the Mapi32.dll file in the System32 folder.

    Found another fix by renaming the file here:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\system\MSMAPI\1033\msmapi32.dll

    Close outlook, rename the file, open outlook. Outlook repairs the file and the email links work again.
