Greg, there have often been issues with URLs getting split, which I don't fully 
understand, but in this case I think the fault lies with the program you used 
to type the email. Looking at the headers of the original email received by the 
list server, it looks like you used your ISP's webmail interface.

Like many email programs, it included both a plain text and a formatted HTML 
version of the text you typed, but the plain text part had a dot missing in the 
URL. The HTML part, which is most likely what you could see when you sent it, 
was ok. The list server sends the plain text part of people's emails out to the 
list members, so we only got to see the partial URL.

It's quite common for formatting to get messed up by this process, but not 
common to have differences in the actual text like that. I've emailed the 
author of your ISP's mail program, Atmail, to see if they can suggest anything 
to prevent it happening.
