<a href> tags for URL's not working

Hello,

Currently when a ticket is sent in that contains a URL, it is not
clickable (i.e.- when I view source I see no tags). Is it
possible to change this behavior? Sorry but I’ve looked through the
documentation and can’t see anything on this.

Thanks in advance,
Duncan

Thanks Jay.

So there is no safe/good way to do this? It was available in RT v2.x.

Oh, it will likely work, it just puts control of a privileged user’s
web browser into the hands of an unprivileged ticket email-submitter.

Presumably, you might pull nasty tricks that way.

There’s an extension, I think, for Firefox that adds “Open new tab on
selected text” when you select the text of a URL off the screen; might
that be a safer, but still acceptable, approach?
