Support / Re: Line break in activation email link
Last post by Spuds -
I did some quick testing on this and here is what I'm seeing with registration emails sent to:

Looking at the email on the native site (not an email client)
  • Yahoo -> link is intact
  • Outlook -> link is intact
  • ProtonMail -> link is intact
  • Gmail -> link is intact

All of the above email source have both the plain text and base64 encoded versions which is what the forum sends.

Looking at the emails with a client, in this case the Windows 10 Mail app
  • Yahoo -> link is intact,  the fetched email has been converted to quoted printable
  • Outlook -> link is intact, the fetched email has been converted to HTML from the plain text version
  • ProtonMail -> Did not test
  • Gmail -> link is broken, the fetched email has been converted to quoted printable

So it seems when the email client requests the email from Gmail, and Gmail converts it to QP encoding, something goes "wrong".  As to why its a dunno at this point, I hope Sundar gives you some insite.
