E-Mail a Link issue in SharePoint 2007

When I use the “Send to >> E-Mail a Link” in SharePoint 2007, it gave me the wrong link!!!

E-Mail a Link issue in SharePoint 2007

It created a link like this one: http://mysite%2Ecom/test/agenda.doc, But it should be: http://mysite.com/test/agenda.doc

Notice how the server name is URL encoded too. The %2E’s should be periods.

To fix this: we need to edit the core.js file located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033 (Make a backup copy of this file before you make changes)

Find this line:
fileUrl=escapeProperly(httpRootWithSlash.substr(0, slashLoc))+currentItemUrl;

and replace it with this:
fileUrl=httpRootWithSlash.substr(0, slashLoc)+currentItemUrl;

We need to do the same on all the SharePoint WFE and Application servers. Once done, we will need to do IISRESET on all the above servers.
