E-mail Newsletter

I am unable to access interesting topics from the newsletter directly.  I get this message when I click on a link:

"Due to the presence of characters known to be used in Cross Site Scripting attacks, access is forbidden. This web site does not allow Urls which might include embedded HTML tags."

I am using a web mail (cox) and chrome.  Your e-mail doesn't have a link on top for "if you can't see this in your browser", which would be nice as going to the home page doesn't show the current e-mail information.  ie Sonic Screwdriver by MrTinkerer  

I've never seen the above warning before and it doesn't sound like one I want to see.  ;-}

They launch just fine from my Thunderbird, just not from the Cox webmail on Chrome. I have never seen that warning and am clueless as to Cross Site Scripting other than 3rd party cookies.

Thanks for getting back to me.

I'm not sure what the message you get means, but it might be a setting on your email client. I can successfully open links in the email in both Chrome and Firefox.

Thanks for the idea on "if you can't see this email.."
