Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this but ...

I sometimes (last week 3) get mails where there are links to other sites then the Rainmeter Forum?
Is that normal? Why is that?

That external link that is embedded is certainly not normal, but isn't being sent by us. That would indicate to me that something is injecting it in your email. I would be tempted to run MalwareBytes AntiMalware to see if you don't have something going on on your system.

Edit: I have tested this, and that spam / advertising link you are getting embedded in that email is not coming from us. I do strongly suggest that you check your system for malware.
