Additional Information

Steps to Duplicate:
  1. Compose a new message and create an embedded link e.g. by the name "test" and the link being C:\Users\bgreen\AppData\Local\Temp\XPgrpwise\47FDE584AITDEV1001617A61139DF91\GW}00001.HTM
  2. Send this mail to any user.When the recipient opens this link in a new window, the link changes to file:///C:/Users/bgreen/AppData/Local/Temp/XPgrpwise/47FDE584AITDEV1001617A61139DF91/GW%7D00001.HTM

    Note the "escaped""}" in the word "GW}00001" which changes to "%" Thereby rendering the link unusable.
    This is observed when the link is opened with IE7 and Mozilla Firefox. It works fine with Internet Explorer 6.
