    Copy the URL to which you want to link. Then, when you write the message, select the words you want to be the link by rolling over them with the mouse while holding the button. Then just above the text box, click on the icon that has a picture of a world with a chain link (or paper clip?). A message box will pop up asking you to enter the URL of the link. Paste the URL and click OK.

    I hope I explained that clearly.
