How to Hyperlink to Microsoft Outlook
By Jason Spidle
When composing a message in Microsoft Outlook, you can create hyperlinks that point to a variety of locations within the Outlook program including folders, the calendar, specific contacts and even specific messages. The programming convention used to create these hyperlinks is very simple, allowing you to quickly add links to messages you send for your own reference and to assist the recipients of your message.
Select "Start," "All Programs," "Microsoft Office" and then "Microsoft Outlook."
Click "New E-mail."
Create a hyperlink to a folder within Outlook by typing "Outlook:Folder" in the body of the email. For instance, link to the inbox with "Outlook:Inbox". You can link to subfolders by typing "Outlook:Folder/Sub-Folder".
Create a hyperlink to the calendar by typing "Outlook:Calendar".
Create a hyperlink to contacts by typing "Outlook:Contacts". To create a hyperlink to a specific contact, type "<Outlook:Contacts/~Contact Name>".
Create a hyperlink to a specific message by typing <Outlook:Inbox/~Subject of Email>".
