Quickbooks/Intuit links broken or blocked by proofpoint

Quickbooks online links are blocked by URL Defense.


The problem is quickbooks has URLs that are longer than 2048 characters which violates http RFCs.

This also breaks the URL Defense encoding and decoding.



Add intuit.com to your URL Defense Exceptions:

This won't help for old emails but should prevent the links from breaking on new emails.

You probably want to open a ticket with intuit.com because this is not a new issue, they encode just way too much data in the URL.  There's other ways to write webapps that don't require encoding a massive amount of data and parameters in the links themselves.
