Tracking links wrapped in mso (Outlook)

We have created a template email using the Email Editor 2.0


The CTAs in the email are created in a way where they work for Microsoft Oulook (we all know the issues with Oulook and emails)

The links are not being tracked.

We've added the https:// directly in the code and the variable value doesnt tinclude any http.


<!--[if mso]>
<v:rect xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word" href="https://${c1ctaURL}" style="v-text-anchor:middle;width:${c1ctaWidth}px;" strokecolor="${c1ctaBorderColor}" fillcolor="${c1ctaBackgroundColor}">
<w:anchorlock />
<center style="color:${c1ctaTextColor};">


I believe Marketo is not tracking these links because the href attribute is not inside a tag <a>


Did anyone experience this before and come up with a solution or alternative?
