Hyperlinks in emails come in two flavours - a) short, informative and to the point, or b) ugly. Here's an easy way to get around Mail.app's apparently-limited functionality for inserting hyperlinks in your mail.
- Choose Add Hyperlink from Mail's Edit menu and type or paste a typical ugly URL:
It appears in the email exactly as above, then turns into an underlined hyperlink when you press Space at the end. Ugly.
- Place the cursor after the first letter in the hyperlink and type what you'd like the link to say in the email, for example:
- Now delete the surrounding original verbose text, and you're left with an elegant Click Here link that, when clicked, takes your web browser to the now-hidden URL.
