Hello,

I am trying to create an email signature with a link to a YouTube video. I want to give the link a name and ultimately will be passing this on to someone to use from their email client (they will be using Outlook Express or webmail).

I have worked on the assumption that the following command should act as a link. Though when I send out of Mail (testing plain and rich text versions) the link is seen exactly as below and not just the highlighted text.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBVug-GVLg0">Rare Disease Day, 29th February 2012</a>

Has anybody else come across this kind of problem?

Thanks,
Phil

Mail doesn't support HTML in composing.

Just use the part in the quotes (ie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v+LBVug-GVLg0) and it will be a clickable link when the sender receives it.
