Generally internal (caught) pages

"External" links for httrack

No! This option only checks the first-level links given in 
the first URL page ; that is, it only checks links (and do 
NOT follow them)

Wow - do not touch the expert settings ; filters are more 
powerful and potentially less dangerous.

If you want to check external links in a website, I would:
- make a regular mirror ("Mirror website")
- erase all default filters in Options/Scan rules
- activate "test validity of all links"

HTTrack will then mirror tour site, and test external 
links. If an error (404, ..) is encountered, it will be 
logged in hts-log.txt
