Hello,

 

Are we able to change the "visited link" state color on these menu items?  Or add a border between them?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

 

Sincerely,

You can change links' colorings and formatting as it will send out. However if a recipient's device / email program is set to automatically convert all links to blue underlined text, and all clicked links to purple underlined text, then there's nothing to be done about that.

 

Email border color and thickness can be edited via the Design tab of the lefthand menu. 

 

If the border you're referring to is for table cells within a CPE email, then you can edit that when formatting the table itself.

Hello @JRCO_Sales ,

 

The link change color is entirely dependent on the receiving end, whether it uses the default color changes, honors the link's original formatting, or changes the color to something completely different. As such, the most a sender can do is format their text / links how they would ideally like it to appear on the receiving end.

So are we able to change the border and visited link state or not? I did not see a place to do that.
