Whenever I get an email notification (like someone replied to one of the threads I’m watching) the link in the email is broken.
I always get this error when I click the links:
Duplicate headers received from server
This is an example of such a link:
I have to edit it manually and remove everything after showthread.php/ in order to make it work, but this way it will take me to the forum board, not to the specific thread.
I’m using Google Chrome Version 45.0.2454.101 (64-bit)
This is a post aimed at the forum’s developers, but there’s no such section in the forum, so I am posting it here.

It seems when I click the link from within the forum it works as expected. The problem seems to manifest only when clicking the link from within GMail (when reading the notification email). It could be something related to gmail in this case, but should be investigated though.

It’s simply that the authentication from the link isn’t the forum
authentication we use - it’s the built-in authentication.
You need to log into the forum first, then click the notification link.

To add to what Jim said, you can read about the fact we don’t use
vBulletin authentication in our forum FAQ:
The next question that logically follows is why don’t we change the
emails so they reflect the authentication we do use? The answer to
that is that our authentication system, by design, and for security
reasons, has minimal connection to the forum software we use and
integrating that into the forum email system can’t reasonably be done.
