Got ya. I know how important it is to have a device that is working properly. Let's get this fixed. Which mail client are you using? What happens when you place the URL in the email? Are you using the full URL including http://www.? Keep me posted.

That's a good thought, devedsmith! However, the qualification may not translate once it arrives at the destination email. We recommend validating what's actually going into the messages to ensure the full address (including preface http if applicable) so that it is clickable when for the other party.

I don't know for sure, but this may have something to do with Apple's lawsuits regarding smartlinks on phones. I thought it was just with how the phone displayed it, but maybe Samsung's adjustments to avoid getting their phones banned carried over to links that are sent as well.
Thanks for clarifying that, devedsmith.
I'm going to forward your findings to the software development team to see if this is intended as part of the upgrade or if there is a fix for this.
