'Email this Post' doesn't work in blog site

Modified: 2008/02/22 14:40 by janwillem - Categorized as: MOSS, SharePoint
When a user clicks on the "E-mail this Post" link in a blog site SharePoint will send an email with an encoded URL which won't work in email readers.
An example of a link would be:

http://evi%2dmos%2d01/reverseblog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=1

Dashes (-) or periods (.) are replaced by %2D and %2E rendering the hyperlink useless.

Solution:

Microsoft has released a hotfix for this issue. You can find more information here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938241
