It's fairly common to place links between angle brackets in email
messages as this usually prevents long urls "breaking" when wrapped
to a second line. It appears as though you're reading emails in HTML
which is why the hyperlinks are disappearing as they're being treated
as an HTML tag (with no name, thus being ignored). Try switching your
mail client to plain text. Good luck!
