        +1 - I'm amazed to see that this doesnt work, its standard functionality that all users expect on a smartphone email client.

        How is the status of this one "GATHERING FEEDBACK"? I don't see anyone (nor can I imagine anyone) who doesn't think that this shouldn't be fixed?

        Now it's April 2017 and it still doesn't work. Please Guys fix this I really need this feature! :-)

        That would be great! It is standard in many other mailclients... Please!!!

        Still doesn't work all the time for me. 10.0.2. Phone numbers look clickable but sometimes clicking does nothing

        This function is still missing after the release of 1.2 and subsequent update 1.2.1.

        I agree with others, this is pretty basic functionality.

      • Siddharth commented  · 

        Yes I agree, this is big issue, when I tap on any number it should dial and give me other relevant options

        I sent a feedback on this a while ago, not sure if it is what generated this but I want to reiterate this is a needed function and is standard with Apple Mail. Your UI is more helpful than AM, thats why I switched. Having to write down a number in email because it won't populate in the phone is the only aggravation I have.

      • Sam commented  · 

        Agree. This is the same case with some URLs when the incoming email is composed using rich text option.

        Guy gave me his email in the live chat to forward something to him and I could not copy it from the love hat program. It opened a new email then I had to copy it from there :-/

        Neither does clicking an email address. It copies the 'mailto:'

      • Mlrobin commented  · 

        Yes I know this may seem like a small feature, however, I use my phone a lot and being able to call from email is a very huge deal. When time permits, please add this to the list. I truly love this app and I have paid for a lot of email apps and I'm happy to say I am done looking. Have a great one and thanks for the hard work

        I agree - this is really inconvenient and has led to me going back to the default Mail client for the time being. Please fix this as a priority

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Wow - this is really basic guys. Please fix.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I agree, that has to be a deal breaker eventually.
