The problem (glitch) is the same as I have with HTML mail signatures. If
you look at the "Source"code (have Source Edit checked via View/Source Edit)
on your e-mail in which you pasted the link from Word the code for the link
has two quotation marks without the web address in them <href =" "> instead
of <a href="http://web...address">.
There are only two current work arounds. One was suggested: Copy & Paste
the link to something which displays only the web address (not as a
link...such as using notepad) and then copy and paste it back into Windows
Mail. The second is to remove the hyperlink first in Word (right-click on
it) before copying it. Now only the text is copied. When you paste THIS
into Windows Mail, it creates the hyperlink automatically (assuming the text
copied displayed the entire link path such as http://...domain.com
