Copy, then paste the link into the body of the mail.

In most email applications, you won't be able to click on the link in your compose field to go to the page, but the receipient will get an active link.

If you save the messages to your SENT mail folder, YOU can click on the link in the message there and go to the page.

Now that you know that works, here is something else.

If the link if a long one or even if it's short and you want to make the link descriptive:

Type in the name of the page. Example Google.

Drag your cursor over Google to highlight it.

Look in your compose box for an icon that looks like a globe with chain links over it. (this is the standard icon for insert link). Click the link, enter the URL, in the example that would be http://www.google.com/, click OK.

When the receipient looks at the mail, Google will be an underlined link.
