Titles with Links - How do I style them to work in Hotmail and Gmail?

I am using Mailbuild, I have created a template but I am getting a bit confused by all the different email clients and getting them to show correctly styled titles with links.

I am using inline styles where ever possible but I cannot seem to style a title to work in Hotmail or Gmail if it has a link in Mailbuild.

my code

<h2 style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 12pt; color: #FFFFFF; font-weight:normal;"><$title link='true'$></h2>

But the title still comes out as a blue link, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help in advance,

Hi Danny,

This forum is actually for Campaign Monitor, mostly, but basically with MailBuild you can't currently apply a style directly to a template tag. So in this case, the style for the link overrides your inline style for the h2.

We will be adding in the future the ability to do inline styles on the title tag itself, as you can do for some Campaign Monitor tags like unsubscribe.
