Email link formatting changing to default blue underline

Hi, 

 

I have a problem with the link in my newsletter. I wanted to know why the links are in blue on the PC and not on a MAC. How can I put the links in black ? 

Thanks, 

 

Manon

Hello @user619418 ,

 

Despite what formatting you do for links, some email programs, browsers, or even devices will simply override those and go with their preferred defaults. The same can happen on websites, in PDFs, and other things that can contain links that may be opened between one of these three sources. There's nothing that can be done in this case on our end. Those on the receiving end may be able to manage their device, browser, or email program's settings, but otherwise if the receiving end's defaults choose to overwrite a link's coloring it will do so.
