This is a weird one.
So I post an announcement in an announcements list. In the message body I create a link that points to a document library and am sure to include the domain name in the link.
There is a workflow attached to the list that will send the message as an email. But when it is sent out via email, the domain name is stripped from the link url and so it becomes a broken link!
I went into the message of the announcement afterwards and went to edit the link and, lo and behold! There was no domain name in the url! Even though I did use one originally.
I tried the same thing in an Announcement list without any workflow attached and found the same issue.
Anyone have a clue why this is happening? Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Maybe a setting somewhere?
Does anyone have a solution for this behaviour?
