How to include a website address in Thunderbird

  guesswho2 20:24 18 Sep 2007

Could someone advise how include a web site address in an e-mail so that the person reading it can simply click it and connect.

is it not the same as explorer and use file/send link by mail?

or copy paste the url?


  guesswho2 20:32 18 Sep 2007

Yeah, but when I copy and paste, it doesn't turn blue with a line under it to make it an "active finger" if you see what I mean.

what about my other suggestion then?


  guesswho2 20:42 18 Sep 2007

Eh - don't actually understand your "file/send link by mail".

Hi Marg7 and Johnny.
I guess I'm just being a thicko again but a trial right click on a url didn't seem to do for me, what it did for you!

  guesswho2 21:20 18 Sep 2007

OK. The e-mail which I sent to myself when I first saw Marg7's note, has just come in! Thunderbird is painfully slow tonight.
Anyway, as you so rightly said, although it looked just like text when I typed it, when the e-mail came in, lo and behold it was as you said!
So, many thanks.

not too familiar with firefox but always willing to learn, glad to have been of some help.

This is the normal method for Thunderbird

Mark the piece of text you want to add a link to (the text itself needn't be a web address, though it can be)

Click on the second icon from the right on the composition pane toolbar (next to the smilie icon) - and you can attach a link or an anchor, as well as other things. Click Link, and you'll get a pop-up window to play with.

You can also add a link to an image in the same way.

Thanks Marg7 and DieSse for your help. I'll mark this Resolved now.
