Hi Lindsay, I think that happens on Gmail's servers, and has nothing to do with your email itself. I don't know if there's any way to prevent this from happening.
Good find, Will!
The browser by default will place formatting around it for quick recognition. You could try applying your own CSS and HTML
Something like <p style="color: #000; text-decoration: none;"> Or <p text-decoration="none" color="#000"> might mask that the browser is actually applying it.
Never heard of someone wanting to change that? May I ask why? You may already know this but when the browser renders it as a phone number... it allows the user (on a mobile device) to click it to call rather than typing in the number manually. Typically it's a feature you would want.
I agree to your point & this will help a receipient of the email to click & call the rep, but lot of ESP maily B2B block an these email as they consider it as a link.
We find great success with text only email & sucuess rate of making it to the receipient inbox is high too.
Ive had some succses putting the number in a token field. It will remove the link from being rendered in the email.
