Hi,

 

I've search about this topic. Safe Links rewrites URL in the emails. It's very frustrating for our employees.

 

Is there a way to have Safe Links enabled but without rewriting the URLs?
It is from basic HTML that a link has two parts: the text and the link itself. From Microsoft they are not able to do something as simple as keep in the text what was put in the original email and that the link is the modified URL? Users would see the mail as normal.


It doesn't help that Microsoft links span multiple lines. It's amazing that at least they don't use a URL shortener.

 

Thanks!

@mgfeal Hello,
"Is there a way to have Safe Links enabled but without rewriting the URLs?"
I don't think so, the whole functionality of Safe Links depends on that rewriting. That way it can scan and warn you if the link is not safe.
Hope I understood your question

Which version of Outlook are you using? The original link is displayed since at least the previous semi-annual build.
