Smart conversion of URLs and email addresses to hyperlinks in RECE

Guest

Hello,

In Outlook 2007, if I receive an email message that has URLs or email
addresses in it, Outlook 2007 automatically converts them to Outlook (I am
sending the message from a mass mailing web application - it sends the
messages in HTML format, but does NOT create hyperlinks of URLs and emails -
it sends them just as text).

Outlook 2007 converts the text URLs and emails into hyperlinks.

However, Windows Mail, Outlook Express 6, and Outlook 2003/XP do not convert
the URLs and emails in the received message to hyperlinks.

How do I configure these applciations to function the way that Outlook 2007
(in that it converts text URLs and emails into hyperlinks upon viewing)?

I've already done the following:
Changed security to Internet Zone
Unchecked the box about allowing HTML and external content
Added the sender to my safe senders list and/or address book

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Regards,
Ben

This conversion is one of the changes implemented by Outlook 2007 which user
Word to render HTML. Previous versions of Outlook, Outlook Express and
Windows Mail only do this for Plain Text formatted messages.

I would advise you to undo the changes you've made to the other applications
(especially changing the security zone) as you are creating a security risk.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I guess we'll have to hardcode the hyperlinking into our script.

Thanks,
Ben
