Forum thread post email notification has broken link

when a forum user subscribes to thread updates by email, that notification email is sent as MIME content-type "multipart/alternative" with a plaintext and a HTML version. The HTML version is "OK" (if you think HTML for email bodies is OK...), but the plaintext version that contains only a link to the new post in the thread has a broken link:


The problem is that the parameter separator "&" is being HTML-encoded as "&" which is just plain wrong for an URL. Removing the bogus "amp;" makes the link work correctly.

I guess you cannot directly do something about it but have to report it to the forum software company Invision.

Best regards,
