I had scheduled an email this morning but when I viewed it in my inbox as I am notified when it is sent out, it had the following issue where the links for "See More>>" were filled with code:

This is the correct version where the links are shown as just text - there was no issue when creating the email:

The code you are seeing is caused by the angle brackets (>>) that you have at the end of your "See More" links. Certain email servers see that as code and tries to make sense of it on the backend, and instead of rendering as intended, it renders in the code you are seeing. 

I suggest using either the special characters (click into a text box, click the Insert button and go to Special Characters):

 there you will find arrows and angle brackets that will render the way that you would expect:

and you will end up with something that looks like this and renders well in email:

I hope this helps!
