Currently it is a little cumbersome to get to the desired information when one receives a notification email.

Lets assume, I'm not logged in, receive an email notification for a PM like

http://fud.prohost.org/forum/index.php?t=pmsg_view&id=2325

and click on the link for example in Mozilla. I get a dialog with URL

http://fud.prohost.org/forum/index.php?t=error&rid=0

and the title "ERROR: You are not logged in" and have to click "login form". Now I see a the login dialog with URL

http://fud.prohost.org/forum/index.php?t=login&rid=0

and have to enter login name and password. When done, I get the home page

http://fud.prohost.org/forum/index.php?&SQ=....

To get what I wanted see in the first place, the PM, I have to click again on the link to

http://fud.prohost.org/forum/index.php?t=pmsg_view&id=2325

So after all I have to
  1. click on the notification link
  2. click on "login form"
  3. enter login/password, click "ok"
  4. click again on notification link

This is a little inconvenient. What one would like to do is
  1. click on the notification link
  2. get a login page, enter login/password, click "ok"

and see the page pointed to by the notification link.

This should be quite straight forward to implement by passing the full specification of the desired transaction, in my example "t=pmsg_view&id=2325" to a combined message/login dialog, which then would on one page
  1. state that one tried to access something protected
  2. allow to specify account/password
  3. and retry the transaction when clicking "ok"

Clearly this combined message/login dialog could also offer in addition the ""register" and "forgot password" functions like the normal login does right now.
