Problem is that the link also includes the '>', so the confirmation through the link tries to confirm with the code + the '>'.

  • Component changed from swscale to trac

Isn't enclosing links in <> pretty standard in E-Mails? Seen that a couple times. Doubt it's really an issue.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I don't know if it is defined by any standard, but using angle brackets is a common method of delineating a URL in plain text and to allow the link to work with line breaks or word wrapping. I expect most mail clients, browsers, or interfaces should be able to utilize these links properly. I'm sorry it didn't work for you, but in this case it is my opinion that the mail client should be blamed.
