Issue/Introduction

One of the reasons that a link in mail body is not rewritten by Click-Time URL Protection service is due to it being a schemeless URL.

Resolution

In the initial release of Click-Time URL Protection, the service will only rewrite those URLs that are correctly formatted with a protocol scheme.

 

For example:

 

http://www.symantecdomain.co.uk or https://www.symantecdomain.com will be rewritten

www.symantecdomain.co.uk or symantecdomain.com will not be rewritten.

 

 

What is schemless URL:

A URL that does not specify protocols is called a schemeless (protocol less) URL.

Example:

//symantecsampledomain.com/index.html

www.symantecsampledomain.net

symantecsampledomain.com
