The link is broken by the email client which auto wraps the message at
76/77. So it is broken for every one.

(I hate email clients that change things i.e. what you see is not what you
send.)

The intelligent thing that the MAC does is understand the URL over two
lines. (I am saying this even though I don't have one in front of me moment
so I am just saying that from memory)

My email client high light's both as links.
