Comment (by josswinn):

 Background to the issue is here: http://buddypress.org/support/topic

 An example of the issue is here: http://blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/test/

 The example is reflective of the issue *after* applying the patch from
 this thread. The patch has resolved the issue with mailto links as
 described earlier in this thread. However, the patch has not resolved a
 related issue whereby if I include @lincoln.ac.uk (the root domain name)
 in any post/page content, the BuddyPress Activity component automatically
 injects a hyperlink. An example is:



 is converted to:

 <p><a href='http://blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/amakrzanowska%40lincoln.ac.uk/'

 How it decides which user email to inject, I don't know. I have deleted a
 previous user it was injecting and it picked, seemingly randomly, another
 user email address to inject.

 If I add

 add_filter( 'bp_activity_do_mentions', '__return_false' );

 to bp-custom.php, then the issue is resolved, but I also lose the
 'mentions' feature of the activity component.

 The issue doesn't occur on a similar test install that we use.
