Does this mean that you are sending out e-mail messages, and they contain a URL containing the user's name, or something like that? Because if that's the case then your question is backwards. You shouldn't have to decode anything... provided you URL-encode that URL properly in the first place. I'm guessing you didn't do that.

Your assumption is correct. Obviously I'll now encode going forward, but I was trying to find a work around in the mean time.
I suspect I'll just have to resend, it only affected a few people.
