You can also do that by adjusting the properties of the link. In the
same way you can take any text and make it into a link. If you view mail
in plain text only then it wont effect you.

The link text/actual url is an HTML anchor tag: <a
href="url.you.go.to">text you see</a>

An issue has been discovered in MS Outlook (All
Versions) where anyone can fake a URL & send it
across.

How does it work:

Lets compose an email in MS Outlook, lets type


http://www.cybertrion.com & put a space after it to
make it a link. Now put your cursor just before
cybertrion & type any URL for eg: 
http://www.foo-labs.info now send it to anyone. The
receiver will see the URL as http://www.foo-labs.info
but when he clicks on it it will directly take him to
http://www.cybertrion.com

I am not sure how critical this is but it can fool
alot of people & result in download of a virus.
