Summary08699: When sending invites via RemoteControl, {SURVEYURL} isn't recognized by some email accounts as a link
DescriptionWe recently just migrated from 1.9 to 2.0 build 130802. When we send out invites to a survey via the LS tool everything is perfect. However, when we use JSON-RPC interface to call inviteParticipants it sends out surveys that don't have a fully formed SURVEYURL in it. Some email such as Gmail and iMail can detect the https and automatically will turn it into a link but other such as Outlook and Yahoo simply see it as text. Since it is coming across as plain text instead of an html <a> tag, this is an understandable issue. We used the same surveys in 1.9 without issue. I know RemoteControl was change to version 2, so perhaps there is a bug in the code that is causing this problem?
Steps To Reproduce1. Setup survey with {SURVEYURL} parameter in the email template.
2. Create tokens
3. Send out survey invites via inviteParticipants.
4. Open the email and note that Outlook doesn't recognize the SURVEYURL as a link and thus it is not clickable
TagsNo tags attached.

Sorry the syntax to execute the script is:

"php inviteParticipants.php https://LIMESURVEYURL/ 63367"

"php inviteParticipants2.php https://*YOURLIMESURVEYURL*/ 63367"
