    I've just switched from an iPhone where the e-mail app would recognize telephone numbers and street addresses and turn them into clickable links that were highlighted in blue. For example, when you clicked on a street address it open it in maps. This was super useful but this doesn't seem to be the case in my new Moto X running Kit Kat 4.4.

    Is there some setting I need to change?

    That works for me automatically, but I only use Gmail. I can't say if it works on the standard email client, but it should as I think that functionality works across all of Android. For example, if there is a phone number or address in a calendar entry, when selected the appropriate app launches.

    Thanks. I tried Gmail and that got the telephone # highlighted but not the street address.
    Also, I tried K-9 e-mail and the same result: I can sometimes get the number to dial but it's hit or miss (mostly miss). And it's never highlighted. And street addresses never work.

    Any other ideas? I get the feeling I've got some setting messed up somewhere.
    Thanks.

    Thanks. That's definitely not happening for addresses.
    I've been through every menu I can find and haven't see anything like this.

    Any idea where to change this?

    Also, telephone numbers seem to work but they are are not highlighted in any way. And it seems pretty finicky about how long to press it.
