I have subscribed to this site's newsletter. I received the email but it has broken anchor tag at the end. The screenshot is of mobile screen but it is there in web also.

    That looks awfully like a case of the e-mail simply being truncated at some particular raw HTML character count. How are you viewing it? – a CVn Apr 17 at 17:22

I ran into this a while back and it turned out that Gmail truncates messages that are "too long", and this truncation breaks the final link and/or gravatar. (Presumably it's breaking in the middle of the href and so can't render the anchor text and/or image.) This is made worse by SE using ginormous links to support their analytics; 100k just doesn't go as far as it used to.

If you're using Gmail, look for the tiny "message clipped" message at the bottom (easy to miss!) and click that to see the full message. If that's not your problem -- you're seeing the full message, no apparent clipping, yet the display is messed up -- please let us know.

  • Yo right - when I clicked on "View Entire Message" the newsletter rendered without any issue. My bad - I missed that link earlier. – Karan Desai Apr 18 at 7:50

    @KaranDesai the one in Gmail is super easy to miss. I can't speak for other mail clients that truncate messages. (I'm annoyed that Gmail clips at all and wish there were a setting to disable it. If I chose to open the message, let's presume I want to see it! – Monica Cellio Apr 18 at 13:42
