Emailing a hyperlink to a file on a mapped drive letter without link resolving to the local file server name
Posted on 2008-10-09
I am sending an email to recipients in three sites. The email contains a hyperlink to a file that is saved on a mapped letter drive on everyone's computer. Each site has its own local file server with the same folder structure and the same file saved a specific location.
The link I am sending is like this example:
When I send the email, the hyperlink resolves the link above, and changes it so it is pointing to the file server at my site that serves my mapped H: drive like this example:
The problem with this is I do not want everyone at all three sites pulling this file from the server at my site. I want each site to pull from the file from the mapped drive location on their own file server.
Is there a way I can create this link so it will not resolve the drive letter into the server name?
Thanks for any help.
