I am developing a web site using PHP and mySQL and at one point I need to send the user a link to reset their password.
In my design, the e-mail is sent using HTML and the link is programmed using the obvious <a href="http://
... &c tag.
This works fine on most systems; however, users with iPad and iPhone report that nothing happens when they click the link, although other links that others send them are working.
When I ask to see the links that are working it appears that they are written in plain text and that the link is actually being generated on the fly by Apple's e-mail reader. However this approach will presumably not work on all systems.
Is there a recommended method of sending a link in an e-mail that will work on all systems (unless of course the user has turned links off, in which case nothing will work).
Thanks in advance for any advice.
