Customize the links in the email alert template

Tovouno asked
I have a announcement list in SharePoint 2007 on which an alert is set up. In the alert email I receive there's a menu bar with links (ie View my Alert Settings, View Announcements, Mobile View).
Those links doesn't work right now and I would like to change them. How do I do that ? I don't want to change their names, or looks but only where they are are refering to.
I have looked at the Alerttemplates.xml file on the server, but I can't find how to change the links.

Thank you for your help

Take a look at this, which is more developer oriented.  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepointdeveloperdocs/archive/2007/12/07/customizing-alert-notifications-and-alert-templates-in-windows-sharepoint-services-3-0.aspx

I would suggest creating a new email alert on your announcement list using SharePoint desiner to where you can specify your own links and look and feel - If you need help with that piece let me know.
