This is very unclear. Which version of Outlook? Plain text, HTML, or Rich text? Fully patched? I've tried it using 
Outlook 2002 with plain text and with HTML and I always end up getting emails that look like:

Subject: Security issue in Microsoft Outlook

An issue has been discovered in MS Outlook (AllVersions) where anyone can fake a URL & send it across.

How does it work:

Lets compose an email in MS Outlook, lets type

http://www.cybertrion.com & put a space after it to make it a link. Now put your cursor just before cybertrion & type 
any URL for eg: http://www.foo-labs.info now send it to anyone. The receiver will see the URL as 
http://www.foo-labs.info but when he clicks on it it will directly take him to http://www.cybertrion.com

I am not sure how critical this is but it can fool alot of people & result in download of a virus.  For more details
