I have long hyperlinks. These get cut of in outlook to just the first line. Shortening them is not an option. How do I get the entire link to show up on Outlook?

I tried doing it again in word. But then it inserts additional garbage values in the email.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can try placing the link between < and > to contain the URL like this. Another way to go would be to replace the spaces with %20 which is the equivalent of a space.

When you mean shortening them is not an option.. Do you mean, you can't use bit.ly or another shortening service?

Or do you mean that you can't create a shorter anchor text that is shorter and keep the URL of the hyperlink the same?

I cannot use a shortened url with the help of tinyurl or other such services. – user80956 Sep 27 '11 at 18:06
    
So, create some text for the hyperlink. Highlight the text, right click and create a hyperlink with the full URL that you need. - Basically, making it an anchor text hyperlink. – Zack Burruel Sep 27 '11 at 18:11
