Software: Outlook 2003 SP3 (with Exchange 2003 SP2), Outlook Editor, Format

HTML

When pasting a hyperlink into a new HTML message (Outlook Editor), I found

that the hyperlink gets corrupt if the last character is a bracket ")". The

editor's coloring already separates the bracket (blue vs. black) and the

hyperlink properties really come up with all characters but the last (the

bracket).

Link example: http://www.company.com/portal/Service-Desk (Hotline)

Word behaves differently (i.e. correctly).

Obviously a bug, but I could't find any KB article or other posts addressing

this issue.

Does anybody know a solution?

Thanks, Joern

<http://www.company.com/portal/Service-Desk%20(Hotline)

Is there no real solution available? I can hardly tell a user to repair

pasted URLs that way. It would be easier to use the Insert -> Hyperlink menu

anyway.

That is the real solution if you choose to use the outlook editor. Switch to

word as the editor and it works without the brackets.

FWIW, it's easier for me to type < ctrl+v to paste the url and type another

own.
