    Navlist messages come to me as emails, using Outlook Express.
    
    Before New Year, nearly every Navlist message reaching me me via
    NavList@fer3.com  seems to have carried carried the following
    postscript at the bottom-
    
    NavList message boards: www.fer3.com/arc
    Or post by email to: NavList@fer3.com
    To unsubscribe, email NavList+unsubscribe@fer3.com
    
    in which the underlined addresses are shown as links, and a click on them
    took me straight to the destination.
    
    However, a few, such as one posted on 22 Dec to NavList@fer3.com, arrived
    as-
    
    NavList message boards: www.fer3.com/arc
    Or post by email to: NavList@fer3.com
    To unsubscribe, email NavList+unsubscribe@fer3.com
    
    in which the addresses were not links, for some reason.
    
    Until New Year, that is. At New Year, the postscript, for messages sent to
    me via Navlist@fer3.com  changed to-
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    NavList message boards and member settings: www.fer3.com/NavList
    Members may optionally receive posts by email.
    To cancel email delivery, send a message to NoMail[at]fer3.com
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    in which nothing was actually a link, or marked as such. Instead, it was
    necessary to cut and paste the address into a browser.
    
    whereas of those sent via Navlist@fer3.com , some have the following
    postscript-
    
    > ----------------------------------------------------------------
    > NavList message boards and member settings: www.fer3.com/NavList
    > Members may optionally receive posts by email.
    > To cancel email delivery, send a message to NoMail[at]fer3.com
    > ----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    in which www.fer3.com/NavList is highlighted, and works, as a link.
    
    and for some reason, some others sent via Navlist@fer3.com have no such
    postscript at all.
    
    I offer no explanation, nor do I seek one.  This is no more than an
    observation, that something funny is going on with the marking of links, as
    links or not-links. Just in case it has a connection with the curious
    behaviour mentioned by Gary.
