How to prevent long URL wrapping in most email apps
Authored by: sjmills on Jan 17, '07 07:25:44AM

I've *always* put angle brackets around urls in email messages, and they always break when some Windoze users get my message. It's not Mail causing that, it's the Windows mail client being stupid. And these users aren't smart enough to realize that the url they see in IE is shorter than the one they clicked in the message, or that there's a space in there if their mail client somehow managed to keep the entire wrapped url intact (plus the unnecessary space).

I recently found the Add Hyperlink menu item in Mail (funny how you miss a lot of features if you aren't paying attention:). I haven't actually tried sending one to Windoze users yet.
