My experience is that Chrome sometimes automatically links the URL for you,
other times it doesn't. Often if I simply force a carriage return right
after the URL, Chrome "gets it." Even when I then remove the extraneous
carriage return, the live link is retained.

If Chrome fails on all accounts, I highlight the URL text, copy it to the
Clipboard, click the link icon on the bottom toolbar, and then paste the
URL in resultant dialog box.
