I'm pretty sure that it is GtkHtml that is the issue.

Here is the link from William's email:
https://careers.homedepot.com/cg/proJobDetail.do?id=Web%20and%20Network%20Administrator&selectedJobId=30983

And yours:
https://careers.homedepot.com/cg/proJobDetail.do?id=Web%20and%20Network%20Administrator&selectedJobId=30983

I don't know how to demonstrate the differences if your email client
is modifying the link, but yours includes "amp;", his does not.
