Default Hyperlink Character limit

How do I overcome the 256-character limit for hyperlinks? I'm using Outlook
2002 with Word 2002 as my email editor.

Default Hyperlink Character limit

You really can't "overcome" the limit, but you can use any of several
services such as http://tinyurl.com/ to make short aliases for the
ridiculously long hyperlinks.

Save the file locally and use relative paths.

In most instances for very long SERP links and other digitial archives
which utilize long-URL's?
If you navigate their system, rather than accepting the first link that
appears, your able to locate a shorter and more direct URL to the same
source.

I would recommend you to use the Long Path Tool. It should sort out your problem.
