URLs generated by velocity script in text version email

Hello,

I'm generating a URL with a velocity script. This works great in the HTML email - however, following the instructions in the Marketo product documentation (http://developers.marketo.com/email-scripting/​) creates formatting problems with the text-only email versions.

Following the instructions causes links in the text version of the email to include the <a> tags.


Any thoughts?  I get that you could simply have the velocity script generate the URL independent of the <a>, and insert that into an HREF attribute in the email editor - but I think this causes tracking issues.

Correct, don't do that!
