I'm using MailerContrib for sending topics as newsletter (complete content).

It is working fine with one exception:

If there is a Table-of-contents (%TOC%) in a topic the links created by MailerContrib representing its items are broken:

<a href=""> Topic1</a>

But it should be:

<a href="" Topic1</a>

or perhaps even better:

<a href="#Topic1"> Topic1 </a>

#1 could be done with the following change in
# Rewrite absolute URLs
#my $base = $Foswiki::cfg{DefaultUrlHost} . $Foswiki::cfg{ScriptUrlPath};
my $base = $Foswiki::cfg{DefaultUrlHost} . $Foswiki::cfg{ScriptUrlPath} . "/view/" . $web . "/" . $topic;    # cz
$tmpl =~ s/(href=\")([^"]+)/$1.relativeURL($base,$2)/goei;

At least that works for me ...

Now I found a way to make #2 work as well.

I added an if() in here:

sub relativeURL {
    my ( $base, $link ) = @_;
    if ( ! $link =~ "^#" ) {
      return URI->new_abs( $link, URI->new($base) )->as_string;
    } else {
      return $link
