    Default [SOLVED] hyperlink to file

    Anyone figure out a way to hyperlink to a file? A few people are asking for it here for in house use. I guess it's my fault for scolding people for e-mailing files that are on the file servers. They'd probably prefer the drive letter:\path but if I could give them unc even they'd probably be happy.

    using the insert link button from the html compose seems to assume it's a web link and always prefaces with http://

    Is there a zimlet for this maybe? I was thinking I could probably try to hack the com_zimbra_url to do something like this.

    hrm. disecting com_zimbra_url i found it does support file:// hyperlinks. I sent this to myself.

    Code:
    file:///home/bdial/test.pdf
    This is a valid pdf in my home directory. It shows up as a hyperlink when i receive the e-mail, but clicking on it does nothing. Right clicking on it and saying 'open in another window' does nothing either. However, if I copy it and paste it into the address bar of another tab then it opens the pdf fine.

    Is this a browser problem? I tried the same thing in IE and FF on windwos as well using like file:///c:/temp/test.pdf and same thing, it comes through hyperlinked but ntohing happens when you click on it.

    Don't mind me, just solving my own problems here.

    Links to local or network pages do not work
