    I just want a hot link to a web site. All i seem to get is the url and some with whom I correspond find copying and pasting it into explorer address bar a complex task.

    What is your definition of "hyperlink"?
    And what and where is it linked to?

    If any of these are using AOL, YES, there is a problem.

    While back there was a post about how to fix this for AOL users and links in the email body, so it may be the same, but I can not it at this time.

    Using outlook express and cable connection. Just want to put a hot link (html) to a web page so recipient can just click on the link rather than copy and pasting url into address window of browser. Would like this to be a part of my signature so I do not have to add it to each message.

    This works in Outlook and should work in OE.
    Open Word and create your signature as follows:
    Sam
    http://www.samspage.com

    Then, assign a hyperlink to the "http://www.samspage.com". Highlight the two lines that you have created and COPY. Then, back to Outlook. Create a new signature and PASTE your information. Voila - new signature with hyperlink.

    I don't think it's even that complicated - I can't check because I don't have OE here at work, but as far as I remember if you put the full URL, ie including http:// on the front, it will be a hyperlink when used even if it doesn't show as such in the signature editing box.

    That is, www.google.com will be just text, http://www.google.com will show as a hyperlink.
