When composing an email using Mail Mac (OS X El Capitan), if I write something .cc, an hyperlink is automatically created. Since I do not want this, I manually remove the link. Anyway, when the email is sent, in the inbox folder the link appears again. Is there a way to prevent Mail to automatically add the link after I remove it?

You can disable smart links and use Cmd+K instead when you want to add link manually.

enter image description here

  • I have smart links option disabled and, when I write the email, no links seem to be present (no blue underscores). However, after sending it, links automatically appear again.

    oh, that is only while you view in apple mail (in sent items). try sending it to e.g. gmail address, you wont see the hyperlinks there.
