Re OS 10.6.7 (maybe works with other versions)

Maybe everyone else knows this, but "just in case": I tried this & surprised it works.

In standard Apple Mail (NOT HTML) you can include a graphic, select it without ANY text involved, then create a link from the Edit / Add Link menu.

I used a 350x250px graphic that had been used by an advertiser in html email. The link indicator (pointing finger) doesn't show, but the link works anyway.

I had noticed in Snow Leopard Mail that now when creating/editing a text based link there is no "finger" cursor over the underlined link item in the draft compose window.
First time I saw this I wasn't sure if the link was actually ok and saved out a test message. Of course the link was OK but miss that little bit of confirmation.

Chuck - I agree the missing link cursor is strange. However sometimes people click graphics out of reflex or habit.

Text links tend to "look" like links with underlines & blue color. The linked graphic was a surprise. Could be used for a logo or something in standard email.
