How to Make a URL Clickable in an Email

Email settings and how to. Making a URL clickable in an email.

Step

Hey All,

...
Outlook Email

Step

First things first as you are typing up the email depending on the email client, when you type in a url, such as www.ehow.com, or http://www.ehow.com, if you press enter right after and move to the next line this will almost always create that. See the screen shot. In this example all I did was type up the URL, and press enter, this also works by pressing the space bar.

...
The options section

Step

If after doing so you still do not get the URL option, it is very likely that the settings have you listing it as a text email as opposed to an html email. This setting can be changed.

Step

The feature is generally under the options tab. So in outlook, click on the "tools" menu at the top and scroll the mouse down to options. Then Click on "options" Refer to screen shot. The options in each email client will be different for yahoo, and Hotmail the choice is Mail options or just options.

...
Mail Format Section

Step

Once in the options section click on "Mail Format" or if you are using yahoo or MSN, look for something that says Mail format o type of mail, and you will see it most likely says Text is the type of email if the above steps in step one do not work.

Step

There is an option under mail format to change the format, simply select Html format, and then click apply or click OK depending on the email client. Once complete type up a new email, and press enter after typing up the link, and you should be all set.
