Description:

The "@" is used by Siteminder as a preprocessor variable to encode special variables. If you wish to embed "@" in a .fcc page you can use the HTML escape code : &#64 for example:
<a href="mailto:fred&#64sample.com">this is a test</a>

Solution:

The "@" symbol is internally by siteminder as a special escape character to indicate a siteminder specific variable usage for all .fcc pages.

To embed a normal "@" in a siteminder .fcc file you need to use the HTML encoding for the @ sign which is &#64, this will not be picked up by the .fcc page processing but will display as a normal "@" for the end user that gets the page.

To embed "@" in a .fcc page you can use the HTML code : &#64 for example:
<a href="mailto:fred&#64sample.com">this is a test</a>
