BBIS Email links with & become &amp

BBIS email links which contain an ampersand (&) are being changed to @amp; when added through the link-picker and selecting the option for a link type of "other" 
Example: https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C2CAFB_enUS759US759&ei=ERHnWqfrA9Db5gKi1IDgAw&q=Blackbaud becomes http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C2CAFB_enUS759US759&ei=ERHnWqfrA9Db5gKi1IDgAw&q=Blackbaud

This does not occur when using link type of "http" or "https" 
 
When using the link picker to add links of this type, use the "https" type of link.  
 

Steps to Duplicate

1. From BBIS navigate to Email>Messages.
2. Create or use an existing Message.
3. Insert a link>Create Other Type of Link>Use a URL with an ampersand>Insert.
4. Note the ampersand was replaced with amp.
