I use Outlook to send my emails with links in them. I design the page I want to send using a simple text editor (HTML) and then save it in my Signatures file(xxxx.html). Then, I just attach the signature to the document in Outlook. This seems to work for me.

Start a new email message. 2. Click on "View" and make sure "Source Edit" is checked. You should get 3 tabs on the bottom saying: Edit, Source, Preview. 3. Create your message using the Edit tab. 4. Click on the Source tab and manually go in and add your <a href="somefileorURL"></a> tags to the line of type you want to be a link. That's about all there is to it in Outlook Express. You can have Outlook running on your machine and use it for it's calender, notes, features, etc. and still use OE for your email if Outlook doesn't do this for you. HTH!
