I love questions that ask "How do I make Outlook stop doing this?" when the problem isn't with Outlook. This is one such question: "Outlook sometimes alters HTML by changing the references from "href=" to "defanghtml_href=". Why does Outlook do this? "

It's not Outlook. It's your antispam scanner. It adds 'defang' to the references it deems potentially dangerous so to create an invalid HTML tag which won’t be rendered as HTML. If your client side scanner is adding it, you may be able to disable the URL rewrite feature. If its added server side you'll need to speak with your email administrator.

If the URL's begin with "BLOCKED:", it is Outlook's doing. Copying URLs from Internet Explorer's address bar, rather from other documents or email messages seems to take care of it.
