Users receive e-mail notification after a new Forum is created. The e-mail includes links to the Forum and the Group Space in which the Forum is created. However, the links in the e-mail are malformed:

- The hyperlink of the newly created Forum is malformed. Accessing this link results in a HTTP 404 (Page not found) error.
- The hyperlink to the Group Space may point to a different server where the FMW/WebCenter setup is configured to be accessed using different URLs internally/externally.
