Hyperlinking in Messages

Windows Mobile 6.5
4/8/2010

The Windows Mobile Messaging application recognizes web address and other URI monikers in SMS and e-mail messages, and automatically presents them to users as clickable hyperlinks in the read form. It is a feature called Smart Hyperlinking, and it provides users with the convenience of being able to "action" on message content to open web pages, open files, begin e-mail and SMS message composition, and place telephone calls.

Smart Hyperlinking supports the following predefined (standard) protocols.

http:

Web URLs from strings beginning with "www.","http:", "https:", "wap:" and "wsp:".

mailto:

Hyperlinks to create a new e-mail message from e-mail addresses (strings containing an ampersand symbol and no spaces).

sms:

Hyperlinks to create a new SMS message from strings beginning with "sms:", and followed by a phone number (a sequence of six or more digits).

tel:

Hyperlinks to place a phone call from strings beginning with "tel:", and followed by a phone number (a sequence of six or more digits).

file:

Hyperlinks that open local files from strings that define a fully-qualified UNC file path name.
