Android Question

I want text view as a clickable link

<TextView
android:id="@+id/link"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
android:text="Forget password?"
android:autoLink="all"
android:linksClickable="true"
android:textColor="@color/lgreen"
android:textStyle="italic"
/>


Android is highlighting the links in the TextView, but they do not respond to clicks. Can someone tell me how can i do that as a clickable and move to another link.
i tried more times by seeing examples. but i can't. Can some one explain me clearly how to change text view as a clickable link.

        android:id="@+id/txtLostpassword"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:autoLink="email"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:padding="20px"
        android:text="@string/lostpassword"
        android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceSmall" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/txtLostpassword"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:autoLink="web"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:padding="20px"
        android:text="@string/defaultpassword"
        android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceSmall" />

String in string.xml

<string name="lostpassword">If you lost your password please contact <a href="mailto:support@cleverfinger.com.au?Subject=Lost%20Password" target="_top">support@cleverfinger.com.au</a></string>
