When account is created or user requests password reset link, WordPress will send e-mail containing reset link like:

To reset your password, visit the following address:


Problem is that some e-mail clients will parse URL incorrectly and include > into URL, so reset link won't work. I know this is not an WordPress issue, but easy fix for everyone would be to add spaces in between < > and URL.
