how to define clickable URLS in email

Hi,

I wondering about the possiblility of typing an URL in an email for lets say a word document which is stored on a network share e.g. \\server1\share1\word document.doc If I were to type to this up in an email and send to recipients they cannot cick on the link to open the word document as there is a space in the URL. If the shared doc had no space in it's name it would become clickable. This is the same for any network share which has spaces in the name of the share. Is there a way around this? As many of out network shares have these spaces in the title and as a result are not clickable..any ideas?
Many thanks

If you're using Outlook, this website should help: http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/html-email.html
Outlook auto-senses URLs as you type them, and it doesn't handle spaces. Change your email format to HTML, and then when you're composing an email, click on the Insert menu and choose Hyperlink. There you can type in a URL or UNC path, including one with spaces.
