"click here" links

  Truro 09:29 18 Mar 2010

Sometimes an email invites me to "click here" but the words are not highlighted in blue (unlike any website address in the email) so the link does not work. If I reply to the email the words are then highlighted in the form I use for my reply (but clicking them doesn't work either). Any ideas why?

1. Never click on links in e-mails unless you are ABSOLUTELY sure of its authenticity, its the way most "spammers" and "phisers" get you to rogue sites.

2. It is probably your email security that is stopping the address being turned into a hyper-link.
