    GMAIL clickable links

    Is there a way to be able to click the links in an email using the 2.0 Gmail functionality ?

    All links formatted correctly by the sender (ie. url.com: Search with Many OR url.com: Search with Many) should be clickable by default.

    Not sure of the exact problem you are having though unless the URL is not formatted correctly.

    It could be simply that I don't know how to do it.

    I get emails from GMAIL, like for example the one that told me this thread was updated. In the app they definitely show as links but I don't seem to be able to click them and get them to open.

    Could well be that I don't know how.

    Thanks.

    It would be easier to see a screenshot of your device to see what the links look like.

    Hard to troubleshoot this one without seeing anything.

    Sorry.

    The only way I know of right now is to use the DDMS tool in the SDK starter kit. Just do a search for Android DDMS and it should explain it.

    I don't believe there is a native way to do it and the Screenshot app in the marketplace requires root to use.

    Having the same issue..if I get an email from a forum such as this one, the link embedded inside the email will be blue and "clickable". However, if I receive 2 or more emails from the forum, it will group them together as one message and the links will be grayed out and "unclickable"
    I have found that sometimes marking it as unread and reopening it again SOMETIMES allows the link to work again.

    I would also like to know how to ungroup messages from the same sender

    Here's what I do...when I get an email about a thread here being updated and I've already gotten one...the gmail app groups like emails together in a thread similar to gmail.com.

    At the top of the email should be a tab that says # read messages (# is the number you've actually received).
    Click that tab and it should expand to show the subjects.
    Click on the very top one.
    The link should be clickable there, but isn't in the rest...

    Hope this helps! Took me a while to figure out myself, but sure saves time and hassle. If you're having issues and have only received one such email, I'm not sure what to say.
