     Buck,
     
     Yes, I can see your mailto: and http: tags. Anything typed in the 
     message text area comes across. What I can't see is the MIME headers. 
     This is why I cannot identify senders who do not sign their messages.
     
     AFAIK, there is NO WAY to tell cc:Mail to show headers and/or routing 
     information. There is no support of hotlink to web page or Email. 
     Also, to send email via the internet, I have to manually build and 
     maintain a special internet addressbook. Mailto: tags cannot just be 
     copied and pasted into the address book. As a matter of fact, I don't 
     think it supports drag and drop for attachments (everything must be 
     linked manually). IMO, cc:Mail is one of the most pathetic programs 
     I've seen. 
     
     Eric

Eric,
  Just for kicks, can you see my email address after my company name?  How 
about this web link? 
http://www.computerworld.com/home/print.nsf/all/98071359FE
     
I have my email address set up in the form "mailto: mcalabro@commsoft.net" 
with no spaces.  The web address is a similar format "http: 
//www.computerworld.com/home/print.nsf/all/98071359FE" without any spaces.
     
If it works, you can let people know how to specify email addresses, 
links, etc.  I deliberately sent this over the list rather than email to 
simulate a real posting.
