Emailed Links from Not Working?

    As a network engineer in my day job, this is the sort of thing I track down at work.

    I get emails from a few threads I watch but lately, something has changed. I don't know if my browser was updated and flipped a box or if the board has had an update and changed the notification emails. In any case, it only happens on so I tend to narrow it down to this board.

    Either way, the problem is that all of my saved links start with https:// (aka secure HTTP) but the emails all come with blue button "View this conversation" that links to an http:// (aka insecure HTTP) which gives me the old, "You must login to reply to this message" prompt. It acts like there are two different web sites that look the same but are unrelated.

    Anyone else experiencing this? It is easy to correct on my side, I simply type "https:\\" in front of the bad link and it works.

    I suspect there is a template that needs editing in the notification routine that will fix this globally.
