Windows 7: Unable send clickable hyperlink from IE9 using default email

Unable send clickable hyperlink from IE9 using default email

I can send links going to : "Page" > " Send link by email", but they are set in plain text and cannot be clicked by the receivor of the email to bring up the desred page.
If I copy and paste the link on a new Windows Live Mail message it works just fine - the link is clickable.

How can I get it to work the way it always has with outlook express and windows xp with ie8. and be able to send a hyper link from ie 9 without having to copy and paste it?

I'd be willing to bet it's something to do with security but I can't figure out where.

Simple; Windows Live Mail was designed for Window 7 and the old Outlook Express isn't.

I don't use outlook express on my windows 7 machine- it's on my old xp computer. I have windows live mail and any link i try to send from ie9 uusing my default email or my old hotmail will not produce a clickable link like I'm used to sending to my friends,family. ( using the method above inside ie 9)

Found a fix/work around in microsoft support, If the link you want to send comes up on the message in plain text,type a " space" immediately after it with the space bar. Walla- clickable link! Weird but it works. Maybe they'll fix this in an update.

Problem solved.
