If I cut and paste a web link into an email, it does not become a hyperlink. The recipent cannot simply click on the link, it appears just as regular text. I use Rogers Yahoo.


If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Try control click and select copy link location.

    When pasted it should start with http:// or https:// to be clickable as a hyper link.

    I tried clicking them hyperlink but there is no hyperlink option as far as I can see.


    When I try "control click", it won't allow me to do that.  As soon as I hit "control" I can't click and what I get is a little pop-up screen with an option to "hide toolbar or cutomize toolbar"


    Very odd...
