      Description

      I tested the watchlist email notification on MS Outlook 2013 using both XE 5.2.1 and 5.4.4. What I noticed was that links to pages from the ToC don't work, whereas those to the wiki name or the space name do.

      From what I have read on the Internet, MS Outlook seems to have issues with anchor links. I managed to make some random links work by adding an ID, like for instance

      <h3 style="$h3Style"><img src="cid:document.gif" style="$iconStyle" ${iconAttrs} /><a id="$prefixedFullName" name="$prefixedFullName" href="$event.getUrl()"><span>$currentDoc.getDisplayTitle()</span></a> <a href="#nav" style="text-decoration:none;padding-top:8px;"><img src="cid:arrowup.gif" style="border:0;" width="16px" height="16px"/></a></h3>
      

      The ID was taken into account by Gmail, but not by Outlook.
