I do not have any version information. It is about the MHonArc instance on https://lists.debian.org/

I post to a list via text-only mails and keep lines less then 80chars. Because of that I have linebreak some URLs. In my understanding the "standard" for writing URLs in textmails is to close them into < >. Maybe I am wrong with that assumption?

One example with a two-line URL.

[6] -- <https://www.medizin.uni-halle.de/einrichtungen/institute/

The resulting HTML just have the first line as a href-link

[6] -- &lt;<a  rel="nofollow" href="https://www.medizin.uni-halle.de/einrichtungen/institute/">https://www.medizin.uni-halle.de/einrichtungen/institute/</a>

Full real example:

Expected behaviour:
If I am right with the "standard" about < and > I would excpect that MOhnArc keep the < > into account when parsing URLs and transform them to a-tags.
