    What can I do to omit the url that shows up in the list of emails?
    This particular url is the header image.

    Have you tried doing a custom header - even if just a complimentary or branded color border or image? My team does that and this line does not appear in our emails.

    What do you mean by a custom header? The email is fine. The screenshot is from my list of emails in Outlook.

    You could try adding small text above the header as a pre-header to take up room, and create targeted messaging based on that email. For all events, I include the webpage version of the email. For special events, I create different headers & footers for the invites and reminders that have more targeted messages in the pre-header section. It's a lot of setup, but it makes the emails more user-friendly.

    I added a text widget just above the image, It's better. I bet if we had an email code widget, that would fix it. Or use the alt text of an image rather than the url.
    Thank you.

    Woohoo!
    New feature for emails. I can now add my pretext header.
    Need to be careful though. There is no switching back and forth from build to html.
    I hope this function is added to the header so I don't have to edit each email.
