Remove Marketo tracking query string from links in emails
The query string that Marketo adds to URLs in emails sent from Marketo is causing our software download links (.exe) to download without a file extension when downloaded through Internet Explorer. If we remove the query string that is added after the URL extension the file downloads with no problem.
Has this happened to anyone else and if so what did you do to fix it? It would be good to know if there is a way to add a link in an email and not have Marketo add a query string to it.

What we ended up doing was creating a URL that would redirect to the .exe file. This way we could use the link as a trigger for our smart campaign and still have the user receive their file in IE. Not ideal, but works.
