Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Please note that we are not pushing any specific vendors here, so you'll have to find a dealer yourself, and that dealer may not have the volume of a New York City or Seattle store to match these prices.
