At footer of emails that I receive from Stack Overflow, there is a "Edit email settings" link that suppose to take me to edit email settings page. But it results in a custom 404 page. enter image description here

URL of link: https://email.stackoverflow.com/subscriptions/manage?id=XXX&auth=XXX

    @MikeEzzati you should never share that URL, it's HMAC auth-ed, anyone with that link can edit your email subscriptions (even when not logged in)

Deeply apologize that your question went so long without an answer.

Looks like the email in question was the weekly Stack Overflow Newsletter.

I just confirmed with one of our engineers that there had been a bug with that link, and that it was patched yesterday.

Sorry for the inconvenience. That link should work from now on in future emails.

BTW, you can always visit the Email Settings page to view or change your email preferences.
