How To

Hyperlink a Long URL in E-mail

This is a great way to send those unwieldy long URLs that often get broken in an e-mail.

1. In OSX, open Mail and select New.

2. Type any word or phrase in the body of the letter, then select it.

3. Go to Mail > Edit > Add Hyperlink (or simply press COM-K)

4. In the dialog box that opens, type (or copy/paste) the full URL - be sure it starts with http://

5. Click OK.

6. The selected word should now appear blue with a hyperlink underline.


Another way to hyperlink a very long URL is to type chicken beaks < > before and after the URL.

Example: <>
