SUMMARY

This article explains how to include spaces in a hyperlink or Uniform Resource Locator (URL) when composing a mail message in Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Outlook.

MORE INFORMATION

Sometimes it may be necessary to point to a Web site, file name, or other resource link (FTP, TELNET, NNTP, and so on) that contains spaces in the reference. In these situations, you can enclose the hyperlink that references these resources within the angle bracket characters (< and >). The following examples illustrate the appropriate syntax to use:

   <http://www.company.com/Sales and Support>

   <file:\\myserver\myshare\Annual Report.txt>

   <\\Server\Share\Working Directory>
