How do I see where a hyperlink in a message points?

I recently had to re-install Office (2002). Previously, when I pointed to a
hyperlink in a message in Outlook, I could see the full address to which the
hyperlinked text pointed in the status bar. Now I don't see anything in the
status bar. How can I restore that? (It's possible that before the
reinstallation, I had Outlook 2000, not 2002 installed. Could this be the
source of the difference?)

I point at the link with my mouse, this is called a "hover",
but I do NOT click it.

Then, I look at the bottom of my screen in the border area.
This shows me where the link is really gonna take me.

It is very wise to know where a link is set for, before you
click it.
