you can also do it with HTML.
eg. <a href="http://www.cybertrion.com";>http://www.foo-labs.info</a>
and in addition u can change the text wich is shown when the cursor is
over the link:
<a href="http://www.cybertrion.com";

Sorry for my bad english.

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

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

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