    Default local links in composer

    Hi! I want to insert a local link in new message body like as "\\192.168.0.1\Shared_folder\shared.document.e xt" I'm using the button "insert link", but composer auto complete link and add to beginning "http://". My link look like http://\\192.168.0.1\shared_folder\shared_document.ext
    Any solutions?

    Insert Link does mean a URL and not UNC connection. Can you not just paste the UNC ?

    if just paste UNC then recipient can't used it with one click. and he must copy text and paste it in windows explorer. In other mail composers if I paste UNC in message body the link look like "file:///\\192.168.0.1\shared_folder\shared_file.ext" and i can open document with one click!
    Is it a bug?

    Default Problem with missing file link

    In all email programs, we can just type file://nas/file.txt and it will automatically convert to url. But with Zimbra, this doesn't work. The insert link will insist that all links must be web link, not file link, and will force http:// into the url. For example:

    file://nas/file.txt will become http://file://nas/file.txt

    When I paste the corrected links from outlook express etc and send out, Zimbra will automatically amend the corrected links to point to blank. For example:

    <a href="file://nas/file.txt" target="_blank">Click Here</a> will become <a href="about:blank" target="_blank">Click Here</a>

    Is this intentional or a bug?

    Frustrated.

    Actually, the bug you want is this: Bug 33333 &ndash; "Insert Link" assumes http:// prefix
