HttpUtility.UrlEncode Problem

Hello everyone,

I have this problem that I can't seem to figure out.

I generate an email message from my web page and the email message contains a form that has an action url with an encrypted parameter.

I use HttpUtility.UrlEncode to encode the Id parameter.

When I view the souce in the email message, the Id parameter looks like this:
<form method="post" name="FormResponse" action="http://www.....com/.../FormResponse.aspx?Id=h0qVJ%2bkD%2fQghFcvF0zEB4Fu8Ms8UOD8qeDgWoOJ3%2bR71jdHY78UZKfqLODpwt1kD">

When a user gets this email, and submits the form, the Id parameter ends up being:

Not sure why it's doing this, can anyone help or know how to fix this?

Email readers can do a number of "unknowns" to HTML source, I would highly suggest you not use an email form, rather bring them back to the application if possible.  There likely isn't much you are going to do to fix this, as it is your email reader's fault.

I've found a way to fix this problem, I ended up using a hidden field in the form and used that to read it on my aspx page and it worked great.

Thanks for the help, I'm going to take a look at some of my email message forms and see which ones are just better off in the web application instead of the email.
