Windows 7: URLs in my emails not "clickable"

URLs in my emails not "clickable"

When I put a URL into an email, I expect it to be clickable, even if it is in my SIGNATURE. (options/mail/signatures) So, I send my mail in "Rich text (HTML)" format rather than "Plain Text."

Yet, they are (usually) NOT clickable. How can I set it to ALWAYS send ""Rich text (HTML)"" AND have all links clickable?

thank you.

What email service are you using?

With windows live mail 2011. On new email page, you click messages and then plain text and make sure you are set up for html.

Thank you for that Richard. I should have mentioned that yes, I do use Windows Live Mail 2011. OK, so on the "New Message" I want to make sure it SHOWS "RICH text" and the links will be clickable. Yes, that works even though that is COUNTER-intuitive, imho. So how can I make it use "Rich text" automatically on ALL emails rather than me having to select Rich every time?

Im using 2011. I did it once and it works for all mail
Just so you know, when you write an email t does not work unless you try it in the sent mail folder.

OK I found it
On the inbox page
upper left small envelope click on it
options
mail
send
Then check formattting.

It seems that the above setting overrides the previous information.

This is a poor way to program an email client, I think, Richard. I make a message, it says "Rich text" yet it is NOT. I cannot insert an image and cannot change font etc. Further, even if I make one email showing Rich, it does not remember that for my
next email.

I made one new email message, changed it to show "Rich text" and clicked "Send." Immediately I made another message and it showed "Plain text."

I dream of Outlook Express. Windows Live sucks in a lot of ways; the Windows Live Movie Maker was a huge step backward too. So sad.

I had done all that a long time ago, Richard, for each of my five email addies. No good.

Not sure what you mean by "check formatting" Richard. I did choose "HTML" for "Mail Sending Format."

See attached picture, please.
