# email adress renders incomplete mailto in PDF

When I put \email{e.xmaple@example.com} in a LaTeX document the resulting PDF shows the email address correct, but the link points to .xample@example.com. de character before the dot gets left off. How do I fix this? (I'm a newbie at LaTeX.)

I don't know what package or class you're using that provides the \email command. But you've apparently found a bug in it. It would be good to contact the package/class developers. –  Matthew Leingang Jan 18 '11 at 15:27
@Matthew Leingang \usepackage{} was used to get \email{} or \email*{}. I'm using MiTeX/TeXNiCcenter 1.0 stable RC1 and it showed up in the suggestions. –  norbertB Jan 19 '11 at 8:32
That means you used a package, but which? What do you have inside \documentclass{} and your \usepackage{} commands? –  Matthew Leingang Jan 19 '11 at 14:00

Try this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\begin{document}
\end{document}

I don't think you need the \nolinkurl command here. What does it do? –  Alan Munn Jan 18 '11 at 16:13
@Alan Munn You are right it is not needed to create the link. I just use it to ensure that the typesetting is right. Try it with and without and you will observe the difference. –  Yiannis Lazarides Jan 18 '11 at 16:43
@Yiannis I see. I generally like links in hrefs to match my text font, but I can see in this case why you might want a monofont there. –  Alan Munn Jan 18 '11 at 17:39
@Yiannis Lazarides Thank it works ok. I need to alter te style of this mailto-link. A turqouise box is drawn arround it. any suggestion how to get rid of that. As I said I'm a newbie. –  norbertB Jan 19 '11 at 8:29
@norbert See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/823/… to remove the border. Thanks for accepting the answer. –  Yiannis Lazarides Jan 19 '11 at 9:07
