When you say GMail, you mean the GMail app from the Play Store?  If so that's what I'm using. I wonder what's different.

Is there any way as an exercise you can use the same client to retrieve the same mail from a different mail server? I'm thinking there might be some encoding set that the client is trying to respect.

I am using the Gmail app from the store. And it now supports Exchange without having to install the service as I mentioned in the previous page.

I tried this. You might be onto something.  

 

The same links sent via my Exchange email address work, so it seems there is a problem with the Xtra/Yahoo server. I wonder how I fix that?

FYI.. The Samsung S3 (lollipop if I recall) default client handles the links fine for me (makes them links)

 

However The raw android inbox on the Moto X g2... does not.

 

Both pulling it from orcon via imap

It may not be a problem as such, implementation differences.

Start by taking a look at the email header for the same email (if possible) from each server. Take a look at the Content-Type set by the server in each case. Compare other fields also for differences.

Edit: I realise these are not HTML mails email servers set this field in email header.

Content type is the same for both servers.  What else should I be looking at?

Maybe just post both headers after removing anything you want to remain private.

Thats interesting. Are both accounts for those header inspections using the same protocol? (Pop3 | IMAP)

 

 

By the way the account you send from can make a difference to the header so ideally for that header check you want to look at two mails from the same source (ie; Geekzone) direct from each mail server to your client. The manual fwd is kind of invalid.

In my case, both are IMAP pulled, same orcon acct. The only difference is the core Android v samsung/Touchwiz inboxes interpreting them
