Each morning, I send out an E-Mail message to a Group of E-Mail addresses. I am using Outlook Express to send these "Group Messages" all at the same time. I also have a Website created for me by a company I am an associate of. How can I create a hyperlink connected or attached to the E-mail message that each member of the group recieves such that if the message receivers click on my Web-Site name, they will be taken to my Web-site? In other words, the person receiving my "Morning Message" (usually as an attachment from Microsoft Word text document) could just click on my Web-Site address and be Automatically taken to my Web-Site with out having to go to an Internet Browser like the Big Blue E Internet Explorer and have to type in the whole Web-Site address? I am desiring to create something User Friendly and get the reader of my message to my Web-Site just by clicking on the Web-Site address. This I am told is called a "Hyperlink." I will pay for the answer as to how this can be done using Outlook Express as my E-Mail sender with Microsoft Word as my attached message.

Hello Screentime, Typically, a hyperlink  included in a normal -- plain text -- email will be "clickable" and open up in a web browser like Internet Explorer . This functionality is handled by most email clients. The hyperlink you provide would be of the following format: http://www.example.com That is, not just "example.com". In case you send out the email in "rich text" HTML format (if you can use bold or italic text), you need to manually specify the underlying hyperlink. A nicely illustrated step-by-step example of how to do this can be found on the following page: Outlook Express - How to add a hyperlink to your messages/posts http://members.fortunecity.com/kathyl/oe_question8_page.html Or if you want the link to be in the Word document itself, take a look at this how-to article: Microsoft Word - Create a hyperlink http://www.computertim.com/howto/article.php?topic=word&idn=23 I hope this helps! Further resources: Outlook Express User Tips http://www.okinfoweb.com/moe/ Footnotes:  A hyperlink is also called: web address, URL, URI, or link. For a detailed explanation, please see: A Beginner's Guide to URLs http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu/demoweb/url-primer.html  You can not determine the actual browser that will be used on the client machine to display your link; it will be the default browser on the system.
