Call me a dummy. Tried to find this online and got totally confused.

 

I'm typing an email and I need to put a link in it so the recipient can click it and see an item in a web catalog. I use Outlook 2010. How?

 

thanks

tjmcs

Hi tjmcs,

I don't use Outlook myself but found the following instructions in a google search that might help.
  • Click the File tab, and then click Options.
  • Click Mail.
  • Under Compose messages, click Editor Options.
  • Click AutoCorrect Options, and then click the AutoFormat As You Type tab. To turn off automatic hyperlinking, clear the Internet and network paths with hyperlinks check box.
The first option in Step 3 of this link sounds like what you want to do.

Other members who have more experience with Outlook may come along soon, so please stay tuned. :)

Is this supposed to be a link in your email signature that has to do with your business, or merely a link that you want another person to receive and be able to click?

Not for a business. The recipient can click the link and view a product from a catalog to see if it is a part I need.

And why can't you copy and paste the link into the body of your email?
