Strange link request

Today i got a mail from someone asking for a link exchange with a PR5 site resource page, http://www.example.com/resources/index.html
But the strange thing is when i tried to open the page in my browser, i saw momentarily it was http://www.example.com:80/resources/index.html and after that it changed to http://www.example.com/resources/index.html
what is that :80 for... a redirection!

Also just qurious to know, does link juice come from igoogle page, coz, i checked, there was no "nofollow" tag present.

The ":80" just tells the browser to connect to the site on port 80, which is the usual web port. Not sure why it'd show up like that.

I was clicking it from my outlook , can it be the reason for that strange behaviour?

Could be - I don't use outlook.

Thanks adwatson for ur reply.
Now i am sure outlook is the reason behind it, coz i send myself a mail with my own url and when i click the same thing happens.
Btwn, do you have any idea regarding my other question? i tried here and in google but could not find any answer.

Yes it's clicking a link direct from the email in your outlook.

"asking for a link exchange with a PR5 site resource page"

Make sure the TBPR isn't fake. More importantly, make sure the resource page isn't on a crap site.
