Adding Hyperlinks

Hypertext links (or hyperlinks), such as Web page URLs and email addresses, can be added to the body of any message. If the recipient has Entourage, Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Eudora, or a similar email program, the embedded links are clickable. When the link is clicked, the user's browser launches and fetches the designated Web page, his or her email program launches and creates a blank message addressed to the email link, and so on.

To insert a hyperlink into a message

  • Do any of the following:

    • Type or paste the link directly into the message. Although a link shows no special formatting as you type, the text displays as a link in the recipient's email program (Figure 10.22)—as long as the syntax is correct, such as http://www.cnet.com or v2@msn.com.

      Figure 10.22. Email messages can contain clickable links to Web pages, email links, and FTP sites.

    • Drag a URL from the Address box of Internet Explorer 5 or Safari into your email message.

    • In Internet Explorer or Safari, -click a link on a Web page and choose Copy Link to Clipboard from the pop-up menu that appears (Figure 10.23). Paste the link into your message.

      Figure 10.23. You can C-click a text or image link on a Web page to copy the link to the Clipboard.

    • In Internet Explorer, you can email a link to the current Web page by clicking the Mail toolbar icon and choosing Send Link from the pop-up menu (Figure 10.24).
