    Unhappy Hyperlink in Email Body

    How do you insert a hyperlink in text in the body of an email?

    I can type a URL and it is hot, but I don't see anyway to insert a hyperllink so that URL is embedded in anchor text.

    Thanks,

    The original poster can correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the question was how can you have a word or phrase be tied to a hyperlink. For example, you want to send out a message saying "Check out the new company Intranet", and the word Intranet is tied to a link so that the recipients can click on the word and be brought to the site. Kind of like on these forums where you can insert a hyperlink to a bug, wiki page, etc. and represent it as the bug name, the wiki page title, etc.

    Maybe there a security reasons why allowing this type of thing would be frowned upon, but I know Outlook allows it and some of my users have asked about this also, so I'm interested in the answer as well.

    I don't know of any security related issue. That would only be applicable if there were a local file that you were linking to.

    I looked and couldn't find an enhancement request. Please file one!

    I think part of the question was also how to embed anchors and create internal links to that anchor.

    Or, better yet if you create it externally in an HTML editor and copy/paste into the ZCS email composer, how to get the links to the embedded anchors to work.
