redirects not working on membership site and email notifcation

Hi, my redirects are not working on this site. when I login it ignores my re-direct rules and just sends me to the protected content page with nothing to prompt the user as to what to do.

Also when I reset my password this message comes through:
======
Someone requested that the password be reset for the following account:

http://mywebsite.com/

Your username: my-username

If this was a mistake, just ignore this email and nothing will happen.

http://mywebsite.com/account/?action=rp&key=nSmjF3l84ek9oY5CNXif&login=dann-test
======

... note there is no 'click the link to reset your password' it just shows the link at the end with no prompt. I have found notifcations in the menus but this email is not one of them.

thanks!

Dann
