I've searched through the Knowledge Base, and could not find an answer to my particular variation of this problem.
Outlook 2007 SP2, Win7 Home Premium, everything patched and updated (as far as I know).
When I type a hyperlink in an hew Outlook e-mail, it comes out as regular text (I use HTML formatting). I have checked and unchecked the Outlook Proofing Editor Options several times to toggle it--no joy. I have changed the same settings in Word 2007 as well, and the hyperlinks are automatically created in Word. I uninstalled Outlook 2007, and reinstalled it-no joy. I still can't get it to automatically create hyperlinks. And yes, I press <Enter> after I type the link.
I can right click on the link I've typed and click on Hyperlink, and change the text that way, but I'd rather get it to work automatically.
Thanks in advance for your help.
