    Default [SOLVED] About VMW joining informational messages

    Hi!

    Today I got email with subj of "Please Read: Zimbra to Join VMware" from Zimbra Team <noreply@zimbra.com>.

    Tried to click the links in message and got error page. In order to investigate I reviewed the source text. The message is "text+HTML"

    Text part:
    Today there is big news for Zimbra- we're excited
    and looking forward to starting a new chapter as part of VMware.

    <http://www.zimbrablog.com/blog/archives/2010/01/zimbra-to-join-vmware.html>
    HTML part:
    Today there is <a href="http://lfov.net/webrecorder/c/?cid=LF_fe2186a1&lid=613596&vid=a90421e5-8515-5935-4a89-76a3ffee8c47&email=here-was-my-email&kid=41"><font color="#990000">big news</font></a> for Zimbra- we're excited and looking forward to starting a new chapter as part of VMware.
    WTF, guys?

    Raj, I know WHY that message was sent. But I can't understand why hyperlinks are different in text-only and HTML parts of same message?
    More, I can visit lfov.net, but can't reach the page under html-hyperlink.

    Why such difference? And why someone "rises the traffic" using 3rd party sites?

    i think its some statistics way of finding out who reached to the page when and how, nothing serious. Its true for everything you click on most commercial site..using Dubleclick or other providers..

    Default email links

    Sorry for causing concern, Raj is right re-direction of urls in html email happens automagically in all emailer programs because they can then generate anonymous statistics. They cannot do this in plain text messages ergo the different urls. Unfortunately we cannot change the settings.
