Adding a hyperlink to a word, phrase, or image means that the link will be connected to the selected text or image, and the text or picture will be displayed as a clickable link.

Procedure

  1. Copy the URL you wish to insert into the email.

  2. In the email message body, select the word(s) or image(s)that will serve as the base for the link.
