I assume you can visit http://veryimportantbrains.createsend.com/T/ViewEmail/r/A1C0A5BD1D9FAFBA ?

Then this non clickabe link is the unwanted one

Hi Zunk,

It looks like the URL is coming from here:
<a style="text-decoration: none;"><$title link='false' default='Nyhetsbrev - Maj 2009'$></a>

It's the <a style...etc part. That's unneeded. If you want to style the text around your heading you should use something like a span or a proper h1 or h2 tag rather than a link tag. Because you're use that link tag without actually having a link it's breaking.
