The best technique I've found so far to address the issue of URLs that wrap
onto a second or even third line as mentioned in my recent message linked
below for context is to:

   1)  Either edit or forward the message (puts the message in edit mode,
   rather than read mode).
   2)  Go to the end of the first line of this lengthy URL and hit the
   Delete key
   3) (If necessary) repeat this process .   You will likely need to hit
   the HOME key and highlight the entire line of text by pressing
   SHIFT-END, then make the font size smaller until the entire URL fits on
   one line.
   4)  Copy URL, then PASTE into your browser.

NOTE:  Keeping the URL in a small font so it fits on one line may turn it
into a working hyperlink when sent.   This will vary by recipient,
depending on what e-mail system them use.
