If you're sending an HTML email then you have to write the links yourself ("<a 
href="..." blah). If you're sending plain-text email then you cannot specify 
links. Text inside your plain-text email which looks like a valid URL _may_ 
be presented as a link by the __recipient's mail client__. To give the mail 
client a big clue stick you should use the full URL, ie 
http://www.example.com rather than just www.example.com.
