you have to send the mail as an HTML mail.

i never used aspmail but according to http://www.serverobjects.com/comp/Aspmail4.htm it should simply be done by setting .ContentType="text/html"

another option would be using CDO.Message on Windows 2000 or above. It also has the option to send mails via an defined email server and not by the IIS Mailer.

hyperlinks in HTML are done by <a href="http://www.experts-exchange.com">http://www.experts-exchange.com</a>

as for the subject - i dont know the aspmail but if there is something like aspmail.subject = "test" then it should be the right way to set the subject.
