Alert Email Results Link drills down to current time not the triggered time


I have an alert set up that searches on earliest=6m@m latest=1m@m to get the last 5 minutes of events that match my query and compare to results in a lookup table. If the initial query results are greater than the results in my lookup, the trigger fires and sends an email.

When the recipient clicks the results link, they are taken into Splunk and the stats table from my search shows correctly with the trigger event showing and the times for the period the search ran against. However, when they click on any of the values to see the events that caused the trigger. The resulting search shows results for the last 5 minutes instead of for the time for which the trigger fired. The search still has earliest=6m@m latest=1m@m , which will produce wildly different results than from the time which it triggered.

Is there a way to correct the drilldown actions so the recipient can see the events which triggered the result after clicking on the stats table they arrived at via the alert email results link? Right now, they have to manually change the search and replace the earliest and lastest values with the trigger times from the stats table.
