Tell A Friend Post, HTML isn't a URL

Hello. Another php question that I have deals with a “Tell A Friend” Link. I have the link working, the form working, and the email working. However, when an email is sent. The HTML link in the email isn’t a URL. I saw reference to using the $HTTP_REFERER but I kept getting errors. The code I have in now is below. In the email part, I have the website name typed in as a plain text. Is there a way using a command to make that link an active URL in email. Do I have to use the [email protected]$HTTP_REFERER

<? $status = "OK"; $msg=""; $y_name=$_POST['y_name']; $f_email=$_POST['f_email']; $f_name=$_POST['f_name']; $y_msg=$_POST['y_msg']; if (!stristr($f_email,"@") OR !stristr($f_email,".")) { // checking friends email $msg .="Your Friends address is not correct
"; $status= "NOTOK";} if (strlen($f_name) <2 ) { // checking freinds name $msg .="Please enter your friend's name
"; $status= "NOTOK";} if(stristr($y_msg,"http://") or stristr($y_msg,"https://") or stristr($y_msg,"<a href") or stristr($y_msg,"http://") or stristr($y_msg,"http://mysitegoeshere.com
