When the URL is being built, are any of the vars or data coming from a
database being used untrimmed. That is, does any of the source data have
some unintentional space padding around the data? Peter

Subject: [nycphp-talk] Gmail breaks URLs?
I have a double opt-in workflow on a site I am building. The user
signs up for membership, they are sent a confirmation email. There
is a link in the confirmation email that they must click in order to
validate their account. The URL is showing up in Gmail with spaces
randomly inserting into it, thus breaking the URL.
Here's an example:
http://staging.looq. com/members/validate.php?id= 4917
There's a space after "looq." and before "com/"
There is another space between "id=" and "4917"
The format of the email is HTML. Looking at the raw source, here's
what I see:
Any ideas of what is causing this?
