[MlMt] links ending in $

Second version, please disregard the previous one :

Regarding this point, I can add the following :

After several verifications, this seems to be be a weird issue : I 
attach a screenshot of a mail that displays that strange behaviour 
(image 1) : when you click on the link, nothing happens as the $ sign 
does not get included.

I then checked the appearance in Mail, Outlook and the Webmail, and the 
$ is now included in the URL, which means you can click on it. Then I 
forwarded the dubious email as an attachment with Mailmate, and it is 
now shown correctly in the attachment.

But to make things weirder (at least to me),I asked my correspondent 
whether his address includes a $, but it turns out his actual website 
address is https://www.normalesup.org/~adanchin,
Which for some reason ends up here as :  
    when I receive it.

This being said, I am not sure the addresses will look the way I see 
them when you receive this email.
