    Links within email alerts sent to WAP phones - Possible?


    Is it possible to include a link within an email alert sent to a WAP device?
    The user could then navigate to this link and "fetch" the WML file pointed
    to by this link. Example of an email alert sent to a WAP device:

    "Your stock just dropped 20%. Click [here] to get the latest price."

    When the user clicks on [here], the WAP device, a URL is fetched - which
    points to a WML file containing the latest stock price.

    Thank you, in advance, for your help.

    I'm assuming that something of this nature would require some parsing routine
    in how email is displayed on a phone. Since this would vary with each phone,
    and there's no standardized OS for WAP phones, your best bet would be to
    check with the individual phone manufacturers. That approach, however, is
    definitely going to lead to a lot of work with little return.
