Default link color in emails

All is fine with the standard text/link situation.

The problem I’m running into is any link automatically created by the email sender (any of them: MailChimp, Campaign Monitor, etc.) will go to the default link color (typically old school blue). Easiest example: unsubscribe links. They’re normally templated in. So you create your custom email, upload it and instead of <a></a> you are adding <unsubscribe> 

Depending on the email content, sometimes there are multiple links created by the sender, and aren’t defined in the actual email created using Foundation.

Has anyone found a solution for this? It’d be great to be consistent with colors/fonts, etc.

In MailChimp, if you include the required merge tag *|UNSUB|* in your Inky code, and then style it as any other item, MailChimp will not insert its own unsubscribe link. Search the MailChimp Help knowledge base for "merge tags" for a discussion of the required tags and how to use them yourself.
