When I send out an email that includes a page link the recipient responds that the link is dead. When I try the link myself it works for me. I think the problem is more if I send it as a clickable link then it does not work for others. But if they copy and past the link into their browser than I think it works fine. Does anyone know a solution to this problem. Thank you! Andrew

Either you or the recipient may have email set to text as opposed to HTML. If so, then clickable links do not work. You can post the whole link and if they are text, then they can copy/paste, but HTML mail users will be able to click it. It doesn't look as nice, but it is a safeguard against text email accounts.
