Customer Question
When I click on...

When I click on a link in an email such as someone wanting to join my LinkedIn group I get a message that says "The operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your administrator. How do I fix this?

Technician's Assistant: No, you can ask a one off question to try things out. Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

Sumo Fiber

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access your email? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

Outlook in web browser. The problem only is happening on my computer. It does not happen in my apple emails.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I have looked in outlook for some kind of security matter but have not been able to find anything.
