I have no clue for you, but you will struggle with encodings (UTF8 vs.
latin-???ß vs. others), with plain text mail vs. HTML mail and probably
with attachment encoding (MIME and content formats).

The first step would be to normalize the input to, probably, plain
text.

Besides these technical aspects, in regard to links, you might consider
longifying short links (bit.ly, tons of others:
http://longurl.org/services) and different names for the same domain:
youtu.be vs. youtube.com.


It's not my intention to discourage you, but doing it right is far from
trivial.
