But if I understand this function right, It will only work for URLs like
http://www.php.net/ - what if the user has a free space from his ISP which
is located in a subdir like http://www.php.net/users/myhome/?

Sorry, Outlook is crap and I'm just too lazy to buy (on Win you have to buy
almost everything) another e-mail client for my working machine.
But I finally moved my ass and changed the options to "send text-only
mails". I hope you are happy now :) (m$ thought it was a good idea to hide
those options as good as possible - I disagree with them, but that's just
normal ;-)
