Why does a url link gets pasted in between < >?

Each time I paste a url link to the body of a message, the link ends up between these characters: < > like this:


I keep removing them before I send messages out but it is a pain in the butt. The recepient gets the message with a clickable link in between these html codes, but it is just not professional. Right now the version of k-9 mail is v6.710

My android is v10.
