Links with Spaces in Outlook · 06/18/2004 10:52 AM, Tech

Ever paste a link into Outlook with spaces in it? Notice how “smart” Outlook is about parsing? Try making a quick mail and typing in (or copy/paste)

"Hey, I stuck this on the server; please review! Load up file://x:\Our Stuff\Important\Client Presentation\x.ppt".

Note how Outlook only hots the part up to the first space? Congrats; you’ve got a broken link.

The trick is a simple one. Put < and > around the entire link. Try

"Sorry about the last mail, it's at <file://x:\Our Stuff\Important\Client Presentation\x.ppt>"

and see how the entire link is active now.

One of those great tricks you never know you need til you need it.
