Outlook 2007/2010: What is the character limit for a link to open?

Outlook Hyperlink also has its own limitation
One of my user was copying a shortcut as a hyperlink in Outlook and it opened the site with a empty Document Library .
I Compared the shortcut url with the one sent as hyperlink in the outlook and found that the one sent to the users is not a complete url/link . so thought their might be some limitation to that too .   
Based on my research, this is what i found
Outlook 2013 – Seems no limitation.
Outlook 2010 – 1033 characters
Outlook 2007 – 1033 characters
Outlook 2003 – 256 characters

About Pratik Vyas

Hi Readers, Welcome to Pratik’s SharePoint Blog. First of all Thank you very much for taking interest and spending time to tour my Blog I am in the ocean of SharePoint since January 2008 (almost 4 years), and still I feel I have to go more deep. I am working with a well known MNC as a SharePoint Consultant. Here I used consultant because I do a little development and customization with administration. I am very much interested in Microsoft products. I have started blogging since 2008 but I can say in real manner I have started it in 2011 (as I have posted only 4-5 blogs from 2008 to 2011 J) I believe there isn’t anything impossible in SharePoint, the only thing is sometimes we have to think something off track. I have posted couple of blogs which was discovered by going some off track, we can simply say it TRICKS. Feel free to reach me in case of any issues or queries I will be more than happy to help you. Good bye and Happy Reading, Cheers !!
