Title attribute on Anchor (<a>) tag in Outlook 2010

Hello,

We are facing below issue in Microsoft Outlook Email 2010.

We are generating an Email having an HTML body from our application The email has multiple links to other pages using anchor tags.

When the user hovers over these links, the URL is shown in the tooltip.

It is required to suppress the URL shown on hover of these hyperlinks.

We tried to use ‘title’ attribute of the anchor tag, but it seems to not work in Outlook; it still displays the entire URL on hover and ignores the title attribute.

for e.g.

Email HTML used:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>

    <title></title>

</head>

<body>

    <a title="" href="<some URL>" data-type="link">Click Here</a>

</body>

</html>

 

Is there any way to achieve this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Vikas

No, as the recipient needs to be able to tell where a link is going to before clicking on it.
