You are set for plain test, reset for html.

Find plain text then change to html

This can sometimes happen even when sender and receiver are not using plain text. For example if there are no spaces before the link, WLM won't recognize it as a link. This is likely to happen if you type Google:www... instead of Google: www... into an email.

links not highlighted in live mail

two fixes:

1) Right after the colon [:]add a space, then go back one space. That highlights the URL.

2) easy and best- enter the URL and hit ENTER. Yes that's all- it produces the highlighting.

Up till 5 days ago the highlighting was AUTOMATIC. Have no idea what caused the loss of this automatic function after 4 years.
