I don't think the link text (on the right-hand side) should autolink.

If you use something like

text including a foo@barNOSPAM.com email address

the result is not as expected. The result is in three parts:

Lots of text including a foo@barNOSPAM.com email address

  • the expected link Lots of text including a
  • a separate link for foo@barNOSPAM.com
  • the literal (unlinked ) string email address
Reproducible here at TWiki./org: TWiki-6.1.0-trunk, Sun, 02 Jul 2023, build 31075

Partially fixed, but still some bugs left if mailto:foo@bar.com or TWiki:Plugins/InterwikiPlugin links are used in link text.
