Default Change Link Color for Gmail

I cant for the life of me figure out how to change the link color for gmail. It works for every other mail Ive tried (hotmail, yahoo, outlook). Does anyone know how to change the link color from the dark blue to anything else and have gmail see that color?

Thanks!

Riki

Are you using inline CSS for the links? More about Gmail here - offsite: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/blog/...r_web_ver.html

CSS in GAZ should all be inline CSS for best results across email readers, but even then some email readers will 'remove' inline CSS. See here for more info.

Look at the HTML source of the email in Gmail to see what, if anything, Gmail does to the email.

Yes I am using he inline CSS, this works in every other reader besides gmail. Here is a good example of the problem, if I manually put the color of the link in the code, the color will show up fine, but all of the GAZ links show up the default dark blue.

Code:
    
<td style="background-color: rgb(31, 31, 31); color: rgb(204, 204, 204);" align="left">

   <a href="http://test" target="_blank"><font color="#ebb35f">http://test</font></a>

   <a href="http://test" target="_blank">http://test</a>

    </td>
