Faulty links to SharePoint in email RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I receive email alerts to changes made to a SharePoint site.  I noticed that all links in the email to SharePoint documents that contain a period (".") do not work and an error message appears.  For example, if a document named Text.doc.ppt was uploaded to the SharePoint site, the link to that document in the automatic email I receive will not work simply because it has a period in the name. 


    Does anyone know why this is/how to fix it?
