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!
