The customer will receive an email, w/ a link like this:

Customer is not logged in to Tender. When the link is clicked, the customer gets a page like the attached screenshot. I assume this means the token didn't work.

Simply refreshing the page seems to properly authenticate, and the discussion can be viewed. For the rest of the session, the customer can view the discussion just fine as well.

Tested this on 3 separate occasions across 2 different computers. Consistent results each time.

    Great catch (again)! The token is only setting the proper cookie, which is why the url works on the refresh. Our tests actually test the parameter, but one of the framework test methods was being a little more lenient than I expected (basically, the test was passing when it shouldn't have been passing).

    I don't want to go into great deal (unless you really want to know), but I've fixed the faulty test (which immediately started failing), and then squashed the bug. It'll now authorize and set the anonymous cookie when you visit a url from the notification email. It's not deployed as of writing, but will be by tomorrow morning.
