I found an RFC (but I'm too lazy to search for it now) where they
describe adding the less-than/greater-than symbols to the ends of
the URL to keep it from being misinterpreted. Here's a sample with
the URL you provided, first with, then without:

<http://my.clarins.com/beauty-product/face/the-essentials/the-essentials/expertise-3p-screen-mist/C010701001/>

http://my.clarins.com/beauty-product/face/the-essentials/the-essentials/expertise-3p-screen-mist/C010701001/

So how's that look to everyone?

Both look the same to me (both links)
I'm using Thunderbird.

Thunderbird appears to handle both on my end also (I'm using Linux).

I'm hoping someone will see the second link as broken and will say
so but only if it's true.

Thanks

I think it depends on both ends (plus of course the middle -- but I
think these don't really care about the <> wrappers if the break lines).
If the originating mailer doesn't break the URL into several lines, I
think more than half of the problem has already been solved. The
brackets may or may not help here, depending on the mailer.

It seems yours doesn't break them, independently of the brackets.

I've fixed the archive so both of those now appear correctly... It's
anyone's guess how many bugs I introduced in doing so.

None? You didn't say I couldn't have a bad guess. But it also answered
my question. It doesn't always work (note below).

Links at the archive are not wrapped and both work - seems good to me.

Cheers,
