Drag e-mails to Notes, and save links to e-mails
Authored by: dilvish1984 on Aug 20, '12 09:10:07AM

The text you got by selecting "Copy Link" is actually a valid URL, so anyplace that accepts URLs should make it clickable, you just have to know how to create a link in each app. A common key shortcut on the Mac for this is Command-K, corresponding to an "Edit Link..." menu item (for instance, in TextEdit this opens the link editor panel, allowing you to turn any segment of text into a link with a destination URL separate from that linked text).

(The OP appears to be relying on data-detectors in various apps, which will sometimes turn any text that they recognize as representing links into clickable text. I've found them to be somewhat unreliable with non-standard URL types.)

In Apple's iCal/Calendar app, you can paste the URL into an event and make it clickable as long as you put it in the URL field.
