Re: [Y-Mail] New Yahoo Neo FF Mail corrupting embedded URLs
- Chris, just wondering about your example below.You had spaces after the slash:http://www.meetup.com/londoncycling/ - London Cyclists Meetup GroupDoes it make a difference if you don't put a space in?http://www.meetup.com/londoncycling/LondonCyclistsMeetupGroupCindy in OhioMelanie, CD, CGC...Border Collie mix

From: Chris J Brady <chrisjbrady@...>This also means that any URLs embedded in a paragraph of text might also get corrupted. Not good. CJB
From: Chris J Brady <chrisjbrady@...>Just been trying to send some emails to friends with embedded URLs - but Yahoo is corrupting them.
This is probably OK.
But if I annotate it by adding " - London Cyclists Meetup Group" after the above URL it turns into:
http://www.meetup.com/londoncycling/ - London Cyclists Meetup Group
This corrupted URL of course does not work.

an URL, receiver can linkify an URL with an extraneous symbol at the end.

I hadn't thought of that. I do see those NBSPs all the time in the
text/plain parts of multipart messages from Yahoo Mail (which is bad
enough IMO). I'll have to go back and look but I don't remember seeing
any in Chris' example.
Still though, my advice to use < and > as unambiguous delimiters stands.
Using them would moot any subsequent tomfoolery with non-breaking spaces.
- If this is in regard to my complaints about corrupted messages, others have not complained. Perhaps they use a different message delivery than I do. I've not encountered the errors with any other service.
All I know is that the corrupted messages all have missing header data which implies a routing issue within Yahoo.

The corruption appears to happen during the Send process. The copies in Sent and those received by recipients are all corrupted. CJB.
