How do I insert a book mark I have received in an email in Outlook
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
I have created bookmarks and hyperlinks in an email message exactly as described, it works perfectly when I set it up but when I send it to other people it stops working? Can you offer any advice please?

check that the hyperlink code in your sent mail - is it directing your recipient to an address they can access?
I have seen a lot hyperlinks that do not work anywhere except on the sender's computer

At step 2, explanation could have been better. Instead of just saying user to put the cursor at required position, could have provided any written text example. Otherwise, job well done and it was helpful :)
