Outlook truncates long links

Hello,

I have noticed that when attaching a long URL inside an Outlook email, not all of the URL is shaded in blue, thereby rendering the link somewhat incomplete (functionally speaking).

Is there a workaround for this, or what are my other options?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Phil

Hello pelampe,

Sometimes long URL will not wrap properly, depending on the recipient's email client.  A workaround is to use Tiny URL

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the input.  I've since been using TinyURL quite a bit.  I've also forwarded it to other people I work with.
