    Hi
    I'm copying and pasting a hyperlink from an incoming email to send to
    someone else in windows mail. ie http://www.fastforwardopportunity.com
    When I send it to them or myself, the hyperlink is not 'clickable'. An
    addrerss error sometimes comes up.
    It will work if the recipient copies and pastes into their browser so the
    original address is correct.
    Thanks in anticipation

    It works here. If you send it to yourself, does it work? If yes, the
    problem is on the recipients end.

  3. Tell the recipient to go to Control Panel | Default Programs | Associate a file type or Protocol with a program and then page down to the HTTP protocol and set IE as default and see if that fixes it.

    As Bruce indicates, its unlikely to be a problem on your end.

    Note, during composition of a message, hyperlinks are not clickable.
