We send out e-mails to our customers containing an order number. Unfortunately Gmail thinks these numbers are IP addresses and turns them into hyperlinks:
In a regular e-mail-client:
Your order number is: 08.12.2013-61
Your order number is: <a href="tel:08.12.2013-16" value="+49812201316" target="_blank">08.12.2013-61</a>
I don't want to Gmail to add this HTML tag to the e-mail.
Is there anything I can do when creating or sending the e-mail to prevent this formatting error?
Edit There was a discussion if Google formats the number into a phone number or an IP number. That's not really important to me. It's neither type of number. I want to prevent Google from auto formatting our order number in any way.
