Email links not working or broken email links

 

There are many reasons why valid emails links will not work.

Have a look at these – one of them may apply to you:-

  1. The Email link you are trying to use is in your Junk Mail or Spam folder: Most Mail system disable links in the spam or junk mail folders. In most cases moving the the email to your inbox will activate the link
  2. You Email security setting are very strict: When your email security settings are very strict link may be disabled or even removed. This often applies to Corporate email accounts.
  3. The Email link has been damaged: When email links are too long they often run into 2 lines. During this process the links are often damaged. Try opening your email in such a way that the link is on one line. Visual inspection: Have a look at the link you are trying to use – does it look like a normal link that has  www.website.com/specificpage  – there should be no % or unusual characters. Normally removing strange characters fixes the link.
  4. You are not giving the link enough time to open:- Often website and webpages are slow or your internet slows down causing webpages to open very slowly. Give your links enough time to open.
  5. You temporary internet files have not been deleted and your computer has not been rebooted for a long time. The lack of free memory will make page open extremely slowly making it look like the links do not work. Clear all you temporary internet files and reboot your computer and then retry the links.
  6. Read the error message carefully: When you click on an email link and you get an error message – read the error message. It often tells you what is wrong and what needs to be fixed.

What to do with suspected broken links:-

  1. Copy and Paste the link into your browser. This fixes the problem in the majority of cases. Make sure there are no spaces in the front or at the back of the link during the copy and paste process.
  2. Find the page referenced in the link in another way. The link often is a page on a website like this one: http://www.moneymakingforextools.com/forum/ . Go to http://www.moneymakingforextools.com/ first and then look for forum on the main menu or elsewhere on the website. Often websites have a “Recent posts” section. Try looking at these as the link you are looking for might be among those new posts.
  3. Add the senders email details to a safe sender or email white list to make sure that future email links have less chance of being managed.

Final Solution

After trying all of the above then contact the person who sent the email with a copy of the email with the broken link in it.
