Q: Non-hyperlinked URLs copied into Outlook 2003 e-mails, Windows 7

I've used Outlook 2003 with Windows 2000, XP and Vista.  I've always been able to highlight a browser URL and copy it into the body of an e-mail, creating a hyperlink the recipient could use to visit the webpage.

Now, in Windows 7, I can highlight the URL and copy it into the body of the message, but it's no longer hyperlinked.

There's a hyperlink button in the toolbar for composing most messages, but it takes too long (you have to push a "Browsed Pages" button, then select the page from a list) and it's sometimes impossible to select the page you want to send: you may have visited several pages on a website and now can't distinguish which of the pages on the list is the one you want to send.

Has Windows 7 made it impossible to create hyperlinks in Outlook messages by copying and pasting browser URLs?

Can I turn that feature on so Outlook performs this function as it did in Windows 2000, XP and Vista?

Thanks!

Sorry this didn't help.

Answer

A:

When you're using Word as the email editor, you'll have to press ENTER or the SPACE BAR after pasting the link to turn it into a link.

If that doesn't work either, check your AutoFormat settings; it has an option to turn typed hyperlinks into clickable links.
