Passing a URL in an email

    Hi, I'm creating a mod that sends a user an email

    Within this email, a url is sent:

    public function sendLoginKeyEmail(array $user$key)
    $link XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('full:login'$key, array('key' => $key));
    $mailParams = array(
    'user' => $user,
    'subject' => "login_security_link",
    'boardTitle' => XenForo_Application::get('options')->boardTitle,
    'message' =>
    "Some one has tried to log in to your account from an ip address not associated to your Login Security \n".
    "Sent from IP Address: \n".
    "If this was you, you can log-in using this temporary link: \n".
    "<a href='".$link."'>".$link."</a>"
    $mail XenForo_Mail::create('contact'$mailParams0);
    $user['email'], // $toEmail
    $user['username'], // $toName
    'Sender' => XenForo_Application::get('options')->contactEmailAddress // $headers
    XenForo_Application::get('options')->contactEmailAddress,  // $fromEmail
    XenForo_Application::get('options')->boardTitle// $fromName
    XenForo_Application::get('options')->contactEmailAddress // $returnPath
    The text is hard coded while I test it, they will be turned into phrases

    The question I have is that I wondered if anyone has managed to pass a URL as a link within an email using a similar method to the above. Right now, I'm finding the email message comes out as:

    If this was you, you can log-in using this temporary link:
    <a href='http:// someforum.co.uk/login/?key=24ca533bd47350925f5a6bac48ed9054d8f6d01abf7979a84'>http:// someforum.co.uk/login/?key=24ca533bd47350925f5a6bac48ed9054d8f6d01abf7979a84</a>

    It's not essential to have an active link, but it would be nice

    Strange, if I use this:

    $mail XenForo_Mail::create('MAIL_CONTAINER'$mailParams0);
    $mail XenForo_Mail::create('contact'$mailParams0);
    or this:
    $mail XenForo_Mail::create('conversation_insert_messagetext'$mailParams0);
    They all seem to get sent with the "contact" email template

    I've seen that the conversation template passes urls (and that the contact email sent doesn't) so I was hoping to piggy back the conversation templates... but alas, using the above, all get sent as contact templates... (The following message has been sent from user1 <mail> via the contact form at xxx.)

    Does anyone have experience with this?

    I was being dumb, they do update and send the correct templates
    ... okay, now its just a matter of creating my own email template similar to the converstaion email templates (that seem to pass the url)...

    and then sending it with the method above...
