Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

I've got a problem with Evolution,.
I've been getting comments from people to whom I send links that the links are not clickable (highlighted recently.)
If I'm at a website if Firefox and go File/Send Link Evolution mail opens with mail to window as it should
In the body section is pasted the link,but recently, not highlighted as a clickable link.
Remarkably,,,,,,,,,,,,Putting a space infront of the link makes it clickable.
Checking Evolution, Preferences, Composer preferences, Forward style setting is at inline and changing does not help

Evolution 2.26.1

Thanks for the report, confirmed, if you delete the last / and press space the link is highlighted again, will look upstream, thanks.

I've noted that making "any" changes to the link will make it clickable ie. space in front, space behind,,,,,,,,,, anything to disturb or modify it
