When a worklist item with a status of "Open" is redirected to another user, the redirected user does not receive the e-mail notification from the K2 Server.
If the worklist item status is ‘Available’, then the redirected user gets the notification e-mail.  If the status is "Open", the redirected user does not get the notification e-mail and so cannot access their worklist items through the link on the e-mail, as it was never sent. The item, however, will appear on the redirected user’s worklist.
