    Description

      Problem:

      If a URL is not enclosed in angle brackets, some email clients only make part of the URL clickable. For
      example, in OS X's Mail program, if your email body includes the string http://foo-bar/quax, only
      "http://foo" will be clickable.

      Solution:

      As detailed in early email RFCs (see http://emperor.tidbits.com/TidBITS/Talk/724/), putting all URIs in
      angle brackets fixes this problem. So on a Mac, sending <http://foo-bar/quax> will make the entire
      URL http://foo-bar/quax clickable.

      Thanks!
