MOS HTML updates

Right after Metalink was replaced by My Oracle Support, I’ve configured a subscription to receive daily updates on new/updated content. I’ve used the same service in Metalink and liked it; it’s good to stay tuned on the latest “surprises” from Oracle. But for some reasons MOS HTML didn’t send me update emails. I tried to configure the same in flash MOS – no luck either. Well, all of a sudden, couple of weeks ago I start receiving MOS HTML updates regularly. So, that’s great, huh? Not exactly: links in message body are broken and when you click one, server reports HTTP 404. Links in an email are like this:

but should be like this:

– note the extra slash between km and DocumentDisplay. Luckily there’s a Firefox plug-in called Redirector which helps in this situation.
It can also redirect you from, for example, flash to HTML MOS – just add the URL mapping and forget about flash version.

    Looks like MOS notifications contain correct links since somewhere like November 2010.

    I don’t know why, but since recently I’ve started to receive standard MOS updates. I had to disable it since MOS HTML updates are enough to me.
