    I've been using this Custom User Agent for some time. Once installed by way of: Chrome Settings>Settings>Advanced Settings> "Under The Hood"> click Custom User Agent button>paste-into the writing box: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_2) AppleWebKit/537.17 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/24.0.1309.0 Safari/537.17 and reboot.

    Using this Custom User Agent would allow a bypass of a Chrome message to "upgrade browser," and clicking to the Outlook e-mail from a bookmark link or shortcut link would lead straight to the e-mail account without stopping at this message.

    Also, since this Custom User Agent stopped working for the above described purpose, one can't paste-in hotlinks to an Outlook e-mail; now a hotlink has to be inserted on an e-mail by the extra steps of clicking the hotlink icon on the e-mail header and pasting the link into a writing box in order for the link to be activated into a hotlink.

    Anyone else having this problem? It seems like it may be a GS7 bug, but it's not apparent what is causing this to happen. I tried deleting and then reinserting the Custom User Agent, but there was no change for the better.

    Try using the following user agent and see if it works any better (it's a newer one for Chrome 32):

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/32.0.1667.0 Safari/537.36

    Thanks, it worked on the bypass.

    However, the auto-hotlinking upon pasting-in a link in Outlook e-mail still doesn't work, but this could be unrelated and just coincidentally happened about the same time that the older API Level, Custom User Agent stopped working.
