Issue:
If your Message Text in the Project Discussion includes a file path, Discussion email drops "\" in file path text (in some scenarios).


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Login with user1 
2. Create project "myproject" 
3. Add participant user2 

4. Go to Collaboration Tab and select Discussions 
Clicked on add 
Add 'Test1" and Select Resources user2


5. Login with user2 
6. Open project "myproject"  
7. Go to Collaboration - Project Discussions. 

7.1. Add New Message: 

Topic Test1 
Subject: review docs 

Enter Message Text: 

Please review below documents

C:\Personal\test1 doc v1.docx 

C:\Personal\test1.docx 

C:\Personal\! Releases\2018-10-30\test1.docx 

C:\Personal\! Releases\test1.docx 

C:\Personal\2018-10-30\test1.docx 


7.2. Select Resources/Groups: user1, user2 
Clicked on Submit 

8. User receives the email. Check the email and observe body text.


Expected Result: 

The Message Text should be correct. The '\' before the document name should be the same as the text message entered in the UI. Here is how the email should look:


From: xxx.xxx@ca.com <xxx.xxx@ca.com> 
Sent: Tuesday, October 30, 2018 4:21 PM 
To: yyy, yyy<yyy.yyy@ca.com>

Actual Result: 

The Message Text is incorrect. Notice that the '\" before the file name is missing in the path that contains 2018-10-30. All the other paths are correct (the '\' before the file name was not removed). Here is the email:


From: xxx.xxx@ca.com <xxx.xxx@ca.com>
