In general, you can just include the address/URL (e.g. "http://www.mysite.com") in your message and most of the tools/clients will convert this into a link. OR You can add HTML codes into your message to add a link:e.g.<a href=http://www.mysite.com>Click to visit Mysite</a>
Pls. let me know if this does not help.
As you may already know, a link is only a pointer that points to a certain document or file. In order for the link to work, the document has to be accessible, either online or on the network.
So if you want to send a link pointing to a notepad file, that notepad file should be accessible to the one clicking the link. In other words the notepad file should be uploaded to a web location.
Alternatively, you can send the notepad file itself as an attachment to your email. It will be sent in an unformatted text which are normally small files (if the file is large, you can zip it using a compression program such www.winzip.com).
Hope this help
OK, there are two steps involved here:
1) Preparing your notepad file: Open the notepad program (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad) and type in your message. To add links to your message, you need to go to the webpage where the files are, right-click on the button or link and select Copy Shortcut. Then paste the shortcut into your notepad text. Finally save the text file.
2) Sending the file: Go to your email program, select the Create message tab or button (sometimes called Compose or Write etc). Fill in the "To" and the "Subject" fields, and then click on the Attach or Attachment button. This will open a browsing window. Navigate to the location where you have saved the file in step 1, and select the file. Finally click the Send button.
Please note that since the notepad program does not allow formatting, the link you paste will not be clickckable. The recipients will have to highlight the link. copy it and paste it in their browser's address bar.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance or in case you need to test this procedure by emailing a test file for me to look at and send back to you.
