I've just been experimenting.  BBxM, RO 5.23 (12 Apr 17), MPRO 7.08,
NS CI #4085.  Some links don't take the input focus, some do.  At the
moment it's just an observation; I haven't looked at the email source
to see if I can discern any difference.  For any given link, I think
the result has been consistent.
