Shorten your URLAre you tired of copying long website URLs into emails only to have the link break when the email is sent out? 

If your link is longer than one line that can happen. This is because many email programs will rewrap your text automatically to make it easier to read. This can cause the long link to break. Your email recipient will to have to cut and paste the long link back together.

Here's a much better way. Enter your long URL into one of many free online URL abbreviation tools. You can quickly create a tiny URL that will not break in email postings.

EXAMPLE:

Copy your long URL:

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?ovi=1&mqma
p.x=300&mqmap.y=75&mapdata=%252bKZmeiIh6N%252bI
