Highlighted text in emails

As you will see, text has been highlighted in blue in the Samsung email app. Please note: the highlighting was not done by the sender of the email.
It looks like an invitation to click on the highlighted text, but when I do, my tablet comes up with an Open with... screen, with inappropriate apps like Google Earth offered. Clearly a fault, and the highlighting is annoying. Please fix.

A full stop and no spaces will look like a Web link ..

This will happen with most phones or computers. Numbers in a block of text, or dates, will be interpreted as links.

I understand a block of text can be a link. But not a date! I still think that is a fault, and would like to see it corrected in updates to Samsung Mail.

A date will usually be interpreted as a calender entry, and will open your calender program when clicked on. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Rob, but no, it doesn't help at all. I've got no reason to use my calendar for anything in the past, such as the highlighted dates in the email I attached. I will just have to look at other email clients to see if they are free of the problem.

I checked the same email with the Gmail app and it does not highlight dates. So I shall be using that app in future for emails.
