    Appearently last week's issue of The SitePoint Tribune, when delivered to a person using Hotmail, had all its links become invalid.

    Did anybody here experience that problem?

    Has anybody had a similar problem with their newsletter, and if so, how did you solve it?

    When you have a message open in Hotmail for a long period of time (maybe 5 minutes) all of the links stop working and you have to re-open the message for them to work again or copy and paste them into your browser.

    Does this answer your question?

    That's very odd! Any idea why on earth it would do something like that, Luzer?

    I think they set a certain amount of time for the links to expire so people don't use their redirect link for their own purposes. There are probably some security reasons also.
