Why is it that when I copy and past a link on to my Microsoft Outlook they are not underlined which requires the receiver to copy and past in order to see the web site? Thanks

Hello camtz,

Are you sending the email in HTML format?  If sending in Plain Text, link may not be active, requiring copying and pasting to open.

Is the link a URL or an HTML link?  If the latter, link will not copy.  You have to copy the underlying HTML code.

Hope this helps!

The link should be active if you send the email in HTML format.
