The problem is that the period ending the sentence is being considered
part of the URL which makes it invalid. You must ALWAYS have white space
around a URL so that it looks something like
Also, some mail clients insert hard carriage returns at the end of a
line when they word-wrap long sentences, which will break URLs if they
wrap to a second line. To ensure that URLs don't word-wrap, you always
want to cite them starting at the left of a new line as I am doing here,
and then type a few spaces after the URL before starting a new line.
This also makes it easier to select and copy the URL without picking up
the invisible carriage return at the end of the line, [Some mail
clients don't automatically turn URLs into live links, requiring you to
select and copy (Ctrl-C) the URL text and then hand-paste it (Ctrl-V)
into a browser. ]
