Yes, and actually the e-mail link is a bit different than in my post. If I click the e-mail link when logged in, it takes me to the page I linked to and shows me what I have included in the screenshot. If I actually click the link in my post, it is slightly different and says the topic is private and that I do not have access.
When not logged in, the e-mail link simply takes me to the list of categories.
Someone might want to check the permissions set on the topic
