Dear Sirs,
I'm using Apple Mail on Mac and each time I click on the job posting link it gives me the link similar to following:

The reason is obvious, the notification about job posting contains dash characters just after the job link and Apple Mail somehow includes them in a clickable link and even if i try to select the link itself it selects it with the dashes.

Could you please correct this annoying feature by adding extra line feeds before the dashes or removing these dashes, they look like following:
- Must have professional credentials.

Do not reply to this email. Go to the URL.

This issue can also influence others who do use alternative mail programs like M2 in opera 7, The Bat etc.

These dashes are useless anyway and removing them would make the letter shorter and quicker to download.

Thank you in anticipation
have a great sunny day
Sincerely, Arterm Sedov

Is it fixed now? Feb 2, 2004


I added an extra line break after the link to the job posting; hopefully that will resolve the problem.

Dear Jason,
I shall inform you immediately when I receive new fixed job notification, in English-Russian it can happen next day or so.
