I am a novice when it comes to writing macros and currently going through a steep learning curve!!

I am trying to write a macro where an email is generated to a recipient. In the body of the email I want to put an email address for the recipient to respond to,i.e.: joe.bloggs@abc.co.uk - how do I write this so that it appears as a hyperlink to email rather than just text?

Any help would be appreciated...

Normally mailto:joe.bloggs@abc.co.uk would do the trick

Thank you for your reply - it works

Is there any way of hiding / not displaying the mailto: part of it in the resulting document as I would prefer for it just to show the actual email address?

Not that I'm aware of but when the user clicks the hyperlink they only get the address part of the link in the address bar of their e-mail. As Bert remarked in your other question, you can do a lot more with html than plain text.
