Symptom

You need to copy a link in your mail (e-mail is outlook) from a normal text file

Cause

This can be usefull from time to time and you do not need any menu to make a link

Solution

You just put the text you need as a link between < and > and it will be considered as a link even when whitespaces are in the text.

e.g.

<file://c:\temp\mydocument.doc>

e.g.
 <http://www.lubby.org>

e.g.
<\\unc-path\folder>
<\\unc-path\folder\folder2\document.txt>

You can even use special characters (e.g. chinese) in your link.
