In the Ventura macOS release, Apple Mail included the feature to preview link urls. I found this feature rather annoying and I had to right click and always had to “Convert to plain link” on the first URL in the email.
Source: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/450339/turn-off-link-preview-in-mail Here is the sample script to run in terminal and turn it off
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/FeatureFlags/Domain/Mail.plist RichLinks -dict-add Enabled -bool NO sudo chmod -R o+rX /Library/Preferences/FeatureFlags
Here is the Plist
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>RichLinks</key> <dict> <key>Enabled</key> <false/> </dict> </dict> </plist>
Once you update the file, you’ll need to reboot
