I often send text messages containing a URL in plain text.
If I send the message in plain text from Seamonkey, it is recognized by
a recipient Seamonkey as a clickable link and displayed as such.
If I send the message in plain text from another mail program (in this
case, Samsung's Android Email app), the plain text URL is not recognized
nor displayed as a link.
Looking at the message source, the only difference I can see is that the
plain text from Seamonkey is sent as 7-bit plain text, whereas the plain
text from the app is encoded in base64.
Curiously, Samsung's app, when viewing such a message, does recognize
the URL as a link.
Why is that, and can I change Seamonkey to recognize the URL in that case?
I have a similar experience with one listserv, which automatically
converts all messages to HTML but does not recognize and mark URLs as
links. If I post in HTML and make my own links, that works, though.
It's the sending app's fault, not ours.
