Is it possible to have text hyperlinks in a plaintext email? Using text like "Click Here" with the link instead of having a long URL next to it?

There is not a way to have text hyperlinks in plaintext emails. Since it's simply text, you can't format it using HTML -- font families, linked text, colors, etc.

If you've linked text in the HTML version of your email to look like this:

Click here to learn more about Emma.

it will update in the plaintext version of your email to look like this in the inbox:

Click here (http://e2.ma/click/tt73g/1rrc/pqq5qb) to learn more about Emma.

That URL will automatically be linked, so the recipient can click on it to be taken to that website, but the "Click here" text itself won't be linked.

I hope this helps!
