A keyboard shortcut to add hyperlinks in Mail.app

Finally! For years, I wanted an easy way to press COMMAND-K to add a hyperlink in Mail.app instead of using Edit | Link | Add.

Hawk Wings has a how-to. Just follow the directions and it will work.

Thank you! I will use this every day...

The trick is to set the Mail.app keyboard shortcut through the system preferences then reference the menu item through it's title "Add...". This, amazingly, works. You can now press COMMAND-K, paste in the link and it's done.

I use Command K all the time and I just used it in an e-mail to add a link and wanted to add another, but now I am unable to do so. The OK button doesn't light up. Makes me crazy! Why would it work one moment and not a minute later?????
