MyNameHere Posted June 29, 2005 Share Posted June 29, 2005 Hi folks, You know how webmail will detect links embedded in an e-mail and display them as a hyperlink? The link actually hits the webmail page "go.php" and sends it the encoded target url. A couple of times now, I have run into links that fail. For instance, the following link works (I can copy it into the IE address bar and it displays the Hertz reservation page): https://webmail.spamcop.net/horde/services/...3Den%26pos%3DUS But the following link does not work (neither from webmail directly nor when pasted into IE): https://webmail.spamcop.net/horde/services/...3D59714%262y%3D However, if I select the text of the link in the e-mail and copy/paste that into the address bar, it does work: http://www.mapquest.com/directions/main.ad...MT&2z=59714&2y= You should be able to try it for yourself with these examples. I suppose it has something to do with the length of the url, but I haven't experimented with it... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
