This broken link business is very common in some browsers (in Windows).

It's because there's an underline in the original URL. When the browser 
sees a link it underlines it in blue, which converts the underline into 
a Rich Text or HTML graphics character.

The simple cure is to cut and paste the URL into a text file with 
notepad. This gets rid of the fancy format characters.

An even better way is to switch off HTML and RTF if you can.
Email was meant to be text.
