One way to create elegant hyperlinks in Mail.app
Authored by: morespace54 on Nov 20, '07 12:15:12PM
Just to point out some (useless) info...

First, the technique described in the original hint is a very basic HTML trick. Anyone who works with HTML regularly knows (or should know) this. But there's people who don't work in HTML regularly... So that's a good thing to know.

Second, never, ever, never (did I mentioned never ever?) follow a link in an email, whether it says "Click here", "www.macosxhints"; or even "www.macosxhints.com/mygreatcomment/2007";. Those links are really to easy to fake no matter what the "hover", "yellow box", "alt" or whatever says. Yes, those are sometimes good indicators but still, do not trust them. The *only* links you should be clicking is the one sent by people listed in your address book (okay, let's say people you really, really know).

Because all the Phising (and ethic), companies *never* send email with links (or at least, they give you an alternate links to paste in your browser). So please don't be leazy, use your fingers and go to the website by yourself (or by pasting the link yourself).

It will give you a chance to be safe and help defeat the Phishers...


(BTW, do not help that poor Somalian Lady who's husband died in a car accident leaving her $2M so she can invest it here, with your help and 25%... ;))
