If you're using something that allows for HTML you shouldn't have a problem.
For example, if you're working in Word or Outlook, type in a web address and
hit enter, it should turn it into a link. The user that receives said
document or email should be able to click it OR hold ctrl while clicking, and
it will work.

It depends on the email clients and program in which you are creating
the newsletter. Most email clients are able to call the default browser
when the user clicks on a web link just fine. Most word processing
programs can treat web links as live. Of course, the success of this
depends on what your recipients are using.

Please post back with a better, more exact description of what you are
trying to do.

Well first I am new with computers, since Oct 04, and I'm 57 years old. This
is all new to me. I receive email with links and I see links to response to
the posting in newsletters and I would just like to know how to do it. Like
when I send an email to a friend and want them to see a web site I would like
to put a link in my email for them to click on, or like in the post on this
site I see links that people put in their response. I would just like to know
how to do that. Nothing real important just for more knowledge on this
computer stuff.
Thanks,
Roy

You can use "Copy & Paste" or "Cut & Paste".

In Windows when you Left Click something, it Opens or Runs it.
When you Right Click something - It modifies it. Here's how to
include URLs (Universal Resource Locators) in an email.

Open you browser and then navigate to the page you want to
include. Place your mouse pointer over the text in the Address field.
Click the Right mouse button. A Context menu will appear. Put the
mouse pointer over the Copy option and Left Click it. This puts that
text (URL) into something called a paste buffer.
Now open or create a new mail message. Click the Right Mouse
button on an empty area inside the body of the message. When the
context menu appears Left Click on Paste. Now a "Clickable" link
is included in your mail message.

One thing to note - Some URL's are quite long. Email messages have
a line break at 76 characters. This can cause the URL to appear in
the message on multiple lines.
There is a website (TinyURL.com) that allows you to associate a
very long URL with a short one.

I have found this free utility to be of great assistance.

Named CopyURL. Adds options to the right-click menu.

Allows multiple links to be selected and pasted in one go.

Roy, ask all the questions you want. You can learn so much here.
Without wanting to make your life more complicated, may I suggest you
participate in these newsgroups through another means than what you are
using now?
If you use Outlook Express (it is a part of Windows, basically) you can have
a much more functional and efficient newsgroup experience. It is fast and
easy to get set up. You can visit other newsgroups easily, and you can do
thorough searches for past posts. Many of thepeople participating in this
newsgroup use OE; your method is not what one would prefer if other options
like OE are available. And they are:
When you are feeling bold, visit this site:

Hi, Roy. From my experience, unless the url you are typing is pretty short,
you are better off with cut and paste. One wrong character, and the link
won't work. Keep in mind that even an extra space at the end of the url will
blow the link.
For example, would you really want to type this into an email?:
http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1724107,00.asp
or this?

I'm glad you have found this "place" and are getting some answers to
your questions. Since you are using the web interface, you may not
realize that this is really a newsgroup. You will get far more out of
this resource if you learn to use a newsreader. There are many good
newsreaders for Windows, but you can use Outlook Express since you
already have it. Here are some links to information about newsgroups:

Thank you for the info on outlook express. I am trying to learn all I can but
some of this stuff is still over my head but it is comming to a little at a

Again thank you for the response.
