Kunena 5.1.15 Released (27 Oct 2019)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.15 [K 5.1.15] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.1 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.1.
Important New post email notification URL broken
Migrating from J! 1.5 to J! 2.5 or J! 3.x could be a reason for this problem (but I'm still only guessing).

A lot of people have problems after migrating from J! 1.5 because J! 1.5 did not have ACLs. Missing ACLs/permissions on your forum categories, menu items or even site folders can cause problems. The most likely cause of "404 errors" comes from badly defined menues. To confirm this—I realise we've asked this before—it would be good to see your current Kunena configuration report (again), please.
Another thing: I would strongly recommend that you upgrade Community Builder to version 2.0.

Unfortunately I cannot enable SEO setting as described in the wiki: we use CBSubs to prevent non-subscribers from accessing joomla article details and some modules; enabling SEO settings breaks this CBSubs function (as described on their forum.)
Here's my config again:) After rebuilding the Kunena menu items with the tool, I disabled some menu items that we don't need and reordered the menu items and relinked to the Kunena menu - no other changes were made to the menu items.

I would be quite surprised if CBsubs did not permit you to use Joomla's SEO URLs but that may be something you need to take up with Joomlapolis. Just as I wrote before "this [issue] should not be a reason to force people to employ Joomla's SEO if they do not want those features", this should also not be a reason to force people to abandon using Joomla's SEO simply because a Joomla extention, like CBsubs, doesn't allow it, either.

I subscribed to a topic and posted a test message using a different account. The image below shows you the email that I received (I have edited the email to remove personal information about myself):
In the image above, I have used arrows to indicate the HTML "ampersand" characters generated by Kunena.
When I clicked this URL from my email program, the URL was correctly translated to
... and the page opened!
I then tried copying and pasting the URL into Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari browsers and the URL worked in every case.
Thanks for your help.
The problem is that the URL is opened by the browser .. but does not direct the discussion where there is the new POST .. .... page opens General Forum .. the general page with all categories ..

Do step 1 and 2 from this: www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/joomla-3/seo-settings
Well this is more a workaround than a solution.
It should work as well with sef enabled or not. I use Kunena on a site where I don't want SEF to be enabled and in previous version of Kunena email notification links were working fine.
Kunena tip: Monetize your forum with AdFly
810 is correct in saying that things were working—for most people—with K 3.0.7 and K 3.0.8. One problem with his observation is that the link to download K 3.0.8 has been removed from the download page on this website.
Given the situation that we are discussing K 3.0 in this topic, and that K 4.0 has just been released and it not fully stable, I think it's better to exercise some caution.
The solution that I found, that works in 100% of cases, is to implement Joomla Search Engine Optimisation feature as shown in Kunena's own documentation. If, however, people do not want to implement Joomla's SEO then that's their decision.
I have not figured out what is the underlying cause of the problem but I suspect that it is webhost-dependent.
