Link color in Outlook for Mac 2011

After I successfully went throught the nightmare of making the links color displaying the same in every e-mail client I tested, I found out that they are still blue and underlined if the email is opened from Outlook for Mac.
Does anyone knows a trick to fix this specific issue?
Maybe there is a proprietary CSS extension that I can use?

Thank you for your answer!

To my knowledge, Outlook for Mac (2011) uses a Webkit rendering engine.  I have never run into any issues with link colors before.  A few things to check:

1.) Make sure you don’t have any link color attributes in your body tag (those might trump CSS in older IE rendering engines)
2.) Try using inline CSS.

If this doesn’t help feel free to share your source.
