Z10 Email Generated Link Dials 911

I've received two emails recently with DHL package tracking information with dangerous links.  DHL tracking numbers are 10 digits, just like a phone number.  The Z10 email application automatically assumes that the 10-digit number is a phone number and converts that text to a phone link.


I assume the link is a hyperlink to the tracking website to see the package location, so I click it.


Tracking number example: 9112345040

Click the Z10 generated link, dials (911) 234-5040


There are no area codes with 911 - that should never become an automatic hyperlink.
