Re: Hyperlink

Depending on the mail client, link-like text can be hyperlinked: even a dotted.series.of.parts with no  protocol can be "upgraded" by Gmail, for example.

Can you show the HTML (or text) used to construct this accidental link?

Not just links but addresses, dates and times, phone numbers etc... So it could be your email client or, if you're viewing on a smart phone, it could be one or many apps 'interfering' with the as is email html

Re: Hyperlink

Lastly, you may have CSS styles affecting different tags in your email template e.g.

span, p, li, td {
text-decoration: underline;
color: lightblue;
}

Re: Hyperlink

Yes, those are all "link-like" and may be rewritten as deep links to protocol handlers.
