I want to send an email message containing a URL.

My first try:

  {subject, "This is my <a href=\"http://www.wolfram.com\">url</a>."}]

My second try:

    Row[{"This is my ", Hyperlink["url", "http://www.wolfram.com"], "."}]}]

Both failed. When I am sending such messages, the message body will be attached files. Is there a work-around that can implement it? I want the message to include the hyperlink.

1 Answer 1


This works for me:

  "To" -> "[email protected]",
  "Subject" -> "Test",
  "Body" -> "Here is a link: http://www.wolfram.com.">

When I send these to myself I get an email with a working link. (I am using mail.app on a mac.)
