I am testing for broken links for web page embedded in mail box ..... so as told the webpage will have links that needs to be tested for broken links , but my query here is if clicking on a link leads me to another link which intern leads to another link and this goes on where do we need to stop .... i am actually testing a page embedded in an email
The reason for this query is there is no specification so where do you think i can stop testing for broken links for the specific web page in the mail box
If the link on the page you are testing works, then you are done. If they are linking to pages within your application then they will have their own requirement for their links and they will be validated with another test
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.

If there's a "Click here to view as a Web page" or some similar link that takes you through to a copy of the HTML e-mail hosted on the Web, it wouldn't hurt to run through those links, too, since that page will probably be built at the same time as the HTML e-mail.
