HELP: Links for AOL Subscribers look funny. Why?
Some time ago, AOL provided users with email software to send and receive emails. AOL chooses to display only HTML formatted links as clickable. That means, the HTML syntax must be in your link, just like an HTML web page. This is opposite of how all other ISPs and email software work, and is also opposite of how AOL displays email on their web page.
Mail-List.com has always formatted links to be in the format for AOL Email readers. Therefore, when AOL subscribers read their email in a web browser, the links appear to be doubled.
Since we do not know which method the AOL Subscriber will use, our method will look odd when viewed in a web browser.
We want to be sure both types of AOL Mail users (whether desktop or webmail based programs) are able to click on the links.
