Outlook gives url and email a blue link color?

Hi,

Outlook gives the url and email in the text below a blue link color but it has to be white as u can see in the code. The rest of the emailclients and browsers are displaying this correct. Is there a workaround for outlook?

<td height="38" align="center" valign="top" bgcolor="#103c6b" class="footer2" style="padding-top:10px;padding-bottom:10px;padding-right:0;padding-left:0;" >
<p style="font-family:'Lucida Grande', sans-serif;font-size:10px;font-weight:normal;color:#ffffff;" ><a style="color:#ffffff;" >sales@domain.eu</a> - <a style="color:#ffffff;" >www.domain.eu</a>
</p></td>

Hi vanwoods,

You're missing the href links in your <a> tags.

Also, if you're referring to Outlook Web Access (OWA), OWA does not support styles so you'll need to use font tags as a back-up.

For all my links I use:

<a href="http://www.thisisalink.com" style="color:#ffffff; text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#ffffff">www.thisisalink.com</font></a>

Thnx BThies,

Adding the font tags as back up works.

I just had this problem as well, thanks for the fix.

Does it mean I have to do this every now and then on my code of practice ?
