How do I stop Outlook from rendering an email address as a mailto: link?

I am creating an HTML email to be sent to a user. If there is a valid email address to within an HTML email, Outlook will render it (normally helpfully) as a mailto: link. Unfortunately, that's not the desired behavior in the particular email I'm sending.

How do I stop Outlook from doing this?

Outlook doesn't recognize this: @[text]@[text].[text] as an email.

Thus putting: <font style="display: none;">@</font>

Before the email link will remove the mailto link.
