I am coding up an email signature and having a headache getting my mailto links for the email address in the right color in Gmail.

Here is my code:

<a href="mailto:bobmail.com" target="_blank" style="text-decoration: none; color: #252525; color: #252525 !important;">   
    bob@bobmail.com
</a>

However when I view the code in Gmail I see the following:

<a href="mailto:bobmail.com" style="text-decoration:none;color:#252525;color:#252525!important" target="_blank">
</a>
<a href="mailto:bobmail.com" target="_blank">
    bob@bobmail.com
</a>

So what its doing is detecting an email address and creating a new <a> link for it, but this new <a> tag doesn't have any of the styles the original one did.

How can I keep my links for email addresses the same color?

Thanks
