Enable/Disable Automatic Hyperlinking in Microsoft Outlook 2007

Turn on/off auto linking while your type an e-mail

For months, I've been doing unnecessary work to links in Outlook 2007, Microsoft's ubiquitous e-mail program.

When I pasted a link into the body of the e-mail, it would not turn blue and underline like it was linked. Earlier versions did this before, (even when i didn't want it to).

So, if you want to make MS Outlook 2007 auto-hyperlink while you do this:

  1. From the main Outlook window go to Tools > Options
  2. Click on [Mail Format] tab
  3. Click [Editor Options]
  4. Click [Proofing]
  5. Click [AutoCorrect]
  6. Click [AutoFormat As You Type]
  7. Check [x] Internet and Network paths with hyperlinks.
  8. Click [OK] for all open pop-up menus.
Or, if you have an e-mail window open:
  1. Click the round Office button in the top left corner.
  2. In the bottom left corner click on [Editor Options]
  3. Follow steps 4 through 8 above.
