Thanks for the tips.

On a standard email there is nothing you can do as that change is being done on the client. Outlook (and probably most other email clients) will recognise the URL and turn it in to a clickable link automatically.
Take a look at your own email below. You didn't do anything to make https://mail a clickable link.
What might work is sending out a HTML email message where you have locked down the configuration of the message to make sure that the address doesn't become a link. It will probably need to be written by hand, and using a CSS file to ensure that URL address doesn't become active.
Otherwise you are looking at the other methods outlined below, or simply not including a link.

Hi ,
Give the URL in the following way ...
say your url is www.abcd.com
just give  abcd.com , so they can copy and paste abcd.com in to web..so it directs because there would be www ( header) will be added in webserver...if we will not type www also it redirects ...
let me know if it helps u ?

I created a script which e-mails users whose password will expire in three days time. In this e-mail I have instructions to change the password and also the URL. Now security team has objected to this saying that providing the URL in the e-mail and asking users to click on those links is a bad preaching. And I also agree to this to an extent. Hence I am thinking is there a way to put the URL without highlighting it, so that users do a copy and paste or if they have to press Cntrl key that is also fine.
Please let me know if you guys know a method to do this. I have written a script in PERL.
