Broken Click-to-Attend Meeting URL in Email Notifications
Problem: Email notifications that are sent to meeting invitees contain a broken URL for attending the meeting.
Solution: Correct the Click-to-Attend Link Configuration on the Usage Configuration Page.
Solution: As a short-term workaround, have the user copy the entire click-to-attend link and paste it into the address field of the browser. Delete any spaces or line breaks.
Solution: (Microsoft Outlook integration only) The Microsoft Outlook client of the user or the Microsoft Exchange settings might be set to wrap text. For more information, see these Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:

System Sends Excessive Random Email Messages
Problem: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace sends excessive email messages that crash your email system.
Possible Cause: The email messages are generated by the cron script. The cron daemon sends an email report of all its jobs to the email address that is configured in the crontab file.
Solution: Disable the email reports by manually editing the crontab file. Specifically, change the line with MAILTO to read MAILTO= "".
