Hi Dave - I've noticed over the past week, when I receive email notices indicating "Recent Activity", and then click on the enclosed link from Mail in iOS 6.0.2 (iPhone 5), I'm taken to a "404 - We're sorry, but the page that you requested could not be found" in Safari.

Clicking the same link from Postbox on my Mac opens the link just fine, also in Safari.

Bill, is this happening with notifications for forum posts, private messages, or both?

Dave, this is for forum posts.  I just checked the notification for this thread and it  worked fine.

If you still have them, could you forward me one of the messages that was giving you trouble on the iPhone?

I've had that happen before, but not in a while.

One possible explanation: if you're trying to view a thread in Off Topic and you are not logged in on your device, you will get that error message. I should probably change that to show a login screen instead.
