    Hello -

    Quick question: I have a simple script (PHP) that emails users information along with a URL. This URL is encoded with characters and is extremely long, and needs to be clicked on by the user, as is, from within the email.

    I have noticed that email clients like Hotmail, Yahoo! mail, and even other app. based clients allow the user to directly click on the URL. However other users, especially AOL users, are having problems clicking on this URL.

    Does anyone know how to embed URL's within an email for AOL users? I know its a bit different because whe I receive newsletters, they normally have a separate link for AOL users.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    AOL's email client is sorta an HTML one. Some tags work, but most don't.

    To make a link, just use the <a> tag.
    <a href="url">AOL users click here</a>
