yeah, replace the entities for this email stuff.... 'the usual suspects'
won't work unless escaped or translated.

function fixURL pURL
replace ":" with "%3A" in pURL
replace "?" with "%3F" in pURL
replace "/" with "%2F" in pURL
        replace "<" with "%3C" in pURL
         replace ">" with "%3E" in pURL
replace "&" with "%26" in pURL
return pURL
end fixURL
