I've just come across another case of SA apparently missing links in HTML emails. I've included the email below to assist in tracking down what's happening.


Email follows:

Your subject line says SpamCop, your posting says SA, so might be some confusion as to which "product" you might be complaining about. What would help much more would be the posting of the Tracking URL of the parse you say failed .. this web-based thing screws up the format of your alleged "perfect copy" .. and usually, after I've copied it from this screen and then "fixed" it to feed it to the parser, the "problem" disappears. By providing the Tracking URL, we could look at what was actuall submitted and the actual parser results, and try to explain things based on what really happened.
