In Outlook 2007, how do you rename a hyperlink in an e-mail? Specifically, I want to shorten the URL to something like "CLICK HERE".

Paste in the URL, then right click the URL and select Edit Hyperlink. Change the "Text to display" field to click here.

BTW, I frown on this behavior on my network. users should always see what they are about to click.

+1 I agree with users seeing what they are really clicking on. There are the cases where the url is so long it becomes unclickable however – datatoo May 24 '12 at 19:20

One more way, type whatever text you want to, select it, press Ctrl+K, paste URL, Done!
