Just got a new PC with Vista Business 64. Transferred Office 2007 to it. I

used to be able to paste a web link into an email, hit the return key, and it

would become a hyperlink. Now, it just stays text. I am using HTML

formatting. What's wrong here??

Have you tried just hitting the space bar? What is the message format you

are using?

As I said in my message, using HTML format. This worked fine in Windows

XP...space bar has the same result.

Sorry, missed the reference to HTML.

What happens if you open the sent message and try to use the URL?

Re: Cannot get outlook to create URL by pasting link, hitting retu

I haven't nor won't send a message like that - I use the insert hyperlink

tool. Folks, what I am looking for is a simple "you need to set this

option..." kind of response. I have double and triple checked all of my

Outlook settings, options, advanced options, etc., and bounced them against

my settings one for one on the XP machine - all identical. Why is Outlook

doing this now that it's on a 64 bit Vista machine??
