Email footer displays html code ' instead of ' (apostrophe)


Email footer displays html code ' instead of ' (apostrophe)

Receiving a Constant Contact email in Outlook displays the html code of an apostrophe (') instead of the actual apostrophe in the email footer. For example...

Can this be fixed?


Hi @TheresaT19 


Although you were able to speak with our Chat Support about this as well, I wanted to make sure our response was shared here as well. Seeing this line of HTML code in your footer is a defect we have seen with users using Outlook. It is an experience we are continuing to look into and troubleshoot. In fact there is an open ticket in your account with our upper level of support. One of these agents will contact you directly with any further updates.

Did they only fix this on your account? It's not fixed platform-wide because we are still having this issue.


Thank you


This is an issue for me as well. Our organization uses an apostrophe in its name. I don't want to have to remove the apostrophe as a work-around but the "&apos" characters appear if I leave it in. I would appreciate a fix.


Has there been any resolution to this issue? Our organization is having the same problem.
