                    </td>
                </tr>
            </table>

When clicked on in gmail it takes me to a blank page; about:blank. In hotmail and Yahoo nothing happens

The url syntax you have used is wrong

Urls are supposed to be like http://www.google.com not like http:\\www.google.com


Try updating the URL as below
