[EP-tech] MS Edge, EPrints & HTTP/HTTPS

In true shambolic style, after investigating all day, finally giving up and
asking the experts I stumble across a solution.

I believe it's related to me being on an internal/on-campus computer. I've
just added the repository to my "local intranet" zone with the http prefix
and it works. I don't know if this is THE solution, but I'm happy with it.

If anybody else has a similar problem this might be useful as it's a bit
obscure and un-google-able.

Internet Properties --> Local Intranet --> Sites --> Advanced. Then add the
http version of the url. e.g https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Flivrepository.liverpool.ac.uk&data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7C9ce3f5df080f4b7ab00208d6b775ecd1%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&sdata=sVaZkUZuWmaQ%2FTYVxue2C%2F%2FDDvtYHpxnwLDmN42FYfU%3D&reserved=0
