Unhappy Can't send a link

I cannot seem to be able to send a link to anyone via email. It will send the whole complete link, but when you click on it nothing happens. When I send it, it is not high lighted like when I get one. If I get one in my email I can send it on and it works. If I want to send one, nothing. What am I doing wrong???

Default Re: Can't send a link

The recipient's ISP has a lot to do with that. Some providers have shut down links completely like AOL for safety reasons. It is then up to the recipient to copy the link from the email and manually paste it into the browser address window. Of course, there are folks out there who will click on anything such as www.imabadguythatwantsyourpassword.com

Harry:

I'm tempted to click on the link and see where it goes but ain't -quite- that dumb.

Where does it go?
