Keep Gmail from creating a link from URL

P: n/a
Hello,

My work involves creating HTML emails for marketing. Recently I've
noticed that whenever I write a url on the body of an HTML email
without linking it (e.g., mycompany.org), Gmail creates a link out of
it anyway. Is there a way to prevent that?

Thanks!

It's a convenience that Gmail--like many mail clients--provides to its
users. You can't prevent it, and why would you want to?

a link. You might just want to mention a URI of a bad or
dangerous neighborhood, but want to protect your readers from
carelessly dereferencing it.)
What I usually do is put some whitespace in the URI, like "valdyas . org",
or in extreme cases spell out "at" and "dot".
