How to make sure URLs/Links in messages are clickable

When you insert a URL into your message, sometimes you may write it in this format:

www.mail-list.com

Usually, your email software will automatically make this link clickable, so readers don't have to manually type or paste into their browsers. Clickable links are usually formatted like this:

www.mail-list.com

However, not all email programs may recognize it as a web address. The program may not make the URL clickable.

 

Therefore, the best way to insert a URL into your message is to include the http:// prefix.
Use this format:

http://www.mail-list.com

This format is recognized by most email software. The link will then appear blue and clickable:

http://www.mail-list.com
