How do I send or receive email containing active hyperlinks to web pages?

Whenever you receive mail that has a URL in it, a mail program that recognizes it as a URL will render it as a hyperlink. If you click the URL, the mail program launches the default web browser on your computer, and sends it directly to the specified URL. In some programs, you may have to double-click the URL. Mail programs that can handle active hyperlinks include recent versions of Outlook, Eudora, Outlook Express, Entourage, Netscape, Mozilla, and Mac OS X Mail, as well as IU Webmail.

To send email containing hyperlinks, you need not do anything special; just enter the URL, including the http:// , ftp:// , or mailto: prefix. Whether recipients will see these as hyperlinks depends on which program they use for reading email.
