Type "[ u r l=address ] link text / description [ / url ]" without the quotes and spaces. Put the http:// address where I have address.
You can do as Stevens suggested or highlight the text in the address bar, copy and paste it into your message. You can also use the mail icon on the Explorer toolbar and select send a page or send a link.

Jimmy, you use the URL command if you want to specify the text string that represents the link. Many URL addresses are very long and would distort the bulletin board page because browser programs do not know how to break up the address.
When you paste the URL address into the postings, you just have to make sure that you include "http://" before the URL address so that the bulletin board knows that it is a URL address and it will automatically make it into a hyperlink.
