Hidden "reset password link" in the reset password email

When an user lost his password and request a new one, using the wp-login.php form, he receive a email with instructions and a reset password link. Unfortunately, the password link can be hidden sometimes, depending the messaging software, and the user don't see the address to follow to renew his pass.
It's because the reset link is include into angle brackets "< >" that some messaging softwares catch as an html tag (a broken one).
I think angle brackets are useless here and can be omitted.
