Send To | E-mail a Link.

  Asked By: Javon    Date: Dec 11    Category: MOSS    Views: 956

Do any of you know how to modify the URL that is constructed and sent as part of
the Send To | E-mail a Link option in the MOSS websites? These links don't work
for the users once they're sent as they take them nowhere. I surmise that it's
because of all the URL spoofing going on out there and the Outlook client
doesn't want to allow URLs meant to obfuscate the user and take them somewhere
else.

Any ideas on if this is configurable such that:

"http://website.domain.com" is displayed as opposed to
"http://website%2E.domain%2Ecom"?

This is actually a bug that Microsoft has a hotfix for:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938241

I assume and hope this will be included in the upcoming Service Pack
1.

If you wanted to and if the fix does not work you can
override the JavaScript that creates these menu items and construct your own
one. I have wrote a couple of posts that talks about this process. It does
not specifically show you how to re-write the "Email Link" option  but the
principles to use. Hope this helps.

That's a known bug. The URL encoding code is incorrect. You can fix the JS
code manually on the WFE file system or I believe there is a patch to fix it.
