Insert a "View as Webpage" link into an email

How can you style the "view as webpage" link? No styles applied to it seem to affect the final or previewed link; it always comes out looking blue with an underscore. This makes it unusable against a darker background.

Hello @ElevateIMS ,

 

This is a known issue the devs are working to address. At this time the two workarounds would be to:

  • Use a more neutral colored background for the VaW link section that would show properly in both light and dark modes.
  • Send your email live to a testing list (even if it's just your own address), copy this live-test email's the permanent URL, copy the live-test email, then replace the coded VaW link with a normal link, and use the live-test's permanent URL.

When will this be fixed?

At this time, we do not have a hard ETA from the devs regarding VaW link coloring.
