I have tried to get the "Show All Hidden Links" to work in Outlook 2016 but for some reason it will not. Even if i create the email myself , add an image and embed a link in it then send it to myself. I know the link is there and if i hover over the image it does show the link. But i still cannot get KUTOOLS to automatically show them as in the description. Is there something am doing wrong or Is there a way i can get it to work on Outlook 365/2016?
