Corrupted Links - HTML Editor (in Powermessenger) --> Solved

Hi WA-team

My client uses PowerMessenger to send out a monthly newsletter.
When creating links to dynamic pages in his website with the included HTML editor the following problem occurs:

A link like

gets inserted via the hyperlink dialogue.
Viewing the source code, the link gets rewritten to:

...resulting, that clicking the link from within a recipients email-client like Outlook or Thunderbird, that link does not work.

Viewing the online-version of that newsletter in the browser isn't a problem, as the browsers seem to interpret the link correctly.

Is there a solution?

Thanks in advance
