Outlook.com removing links

Hello all!

Does anyone have any experience with Outlook.com removing links? Looking at the source, It’s completely stripping my <a> tag and leaving just the text behind, which isn’t clickable. This link is a button. It works everywhere, except for Outlook.com

Another strange thing going on, Outlook is underlining random paragraphs within the email.

Any Ideas??
Thanks,
Josh

Hi Josh,

Could you post your code so we can have a look?

I know Outlook.com strips empty links. So if you have text for example it will strip the a and mess up the style of pretty much everything after it (cause random text to be underlined as if it were text).

For testing purposes I now add http://www.test.com to my links and remove them again when putting the template in the client’s account.
