I am looking to suppress a specified AMPscript personalization string link within the body of one of my emails. It's %%view_email_url%% that I don't want to be tracked. I tried RedirectTo and other options but nothing had worked on the back end. I am wondering if there is a way I am missing that someone could shine light upon.

If anyone has any other questions I can clarify.

    Use Base64Decode to the view_email_url and encode it. This way salesforce doesnt know its a link actually -> no tracking involved Nov 14 '19 at 14:17

This may be similar to the answer here about disabling WAC parameters. You can use the method described by user3274635 to Stop a link from being tracked in a Marketing Cloud email

set @viewEmailUrl = view_email_url
set @link = Concat('<a href="', @viewEmailUrl, '">Name of Link</a>')
  • Tried this and didn't work. view_email_url is a personalization string so it generates a link. Somehow have to generate it and then output using ampscript. Nov 18 '19 at 20:06
