While messages may not appear to have live links since the text is uber-plain, often you can click on them. Also, attachments are often sort of buried at the bottom and don't overtly appear to be links...
Still, just click on a portion of them and they usually work.
I find this to make bb a lame interface since, as a design professional, I have to access files constantly through email as well...
I tried BB Smart and my take is this: the 3rd party apps seem mostly not ready for primetime. I am reminded of why I got the bb in the first place: it is more robust, responsive and reliable. The plain text is a blessing, really. It loads very quickly. BBSmart does not. Once it tries to alter the bb infrastructure, every single email becomes a Treo-like nightmare. I say don't do it.
What is SORELY missing? How about some kind of user controls that just change a color of a link, similar to what you can do in Firefox? At least that way, at least you know you have a link in front of you. I think BB is suffering some growing pains here and is holding itself back from being the great utility it could be...
Or, if anyone knows how to activate this option, please DO tell.
