Default Links in email messages won't turn blue

I just upgraded to windows 7 64 bit and had to reinstall Office 2007. Now
when ever I type a new email and I want to type a URL or copy and past a URL
the URL will not automaticlly turn blue, underline and become hyperlinked.
Yes I have pressed the space bar and even the enter key after inserting the
URL. I have been doing this for years but now my upgraded system won't do it.
My signature email address and website is hyperlinked and I can right click
and add a hyperlink and that all works as it should. The message format is
HTML. I have reset my browser making sure IE 8 is the default browser. I
have read through several posting but I have not seen my answer. I have been
copy and pasting URLs from the IE address bar into Outlook for a long time.
It has always worked great. I hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance.

You need to learn to change the format of your email from plain
text to HTML. I suggest try the help file of your Outlook.

You need to learn to research for your self because nobody is
going to spoon feed you here! Have you heard of Google yet?

Did you check the autocorrect settings in Tools, Options, Spelling,
Autocomplete button? There is an option there to convert web addresses to
urls - make sure it is enabled.

If everyone should google for the answers, why are you here trying to answer
questions?

PS he said he is using HTML.
The message format is HTML.

priceless! simultaneously giving inadequate and incorrect information while
insulting others for not knowing the correct information. the definition of
being a moron

the CORRECT solution in 2007 is to go to editor options via Tools Options
Mail Format Editor Options Auto-correct and check "Internet and network

paths with hyperlinks"
