Hi Peter

I think it's the visited links that are playing up - they just happen to be
the external/mailto links.  Reason is you've used ordinary brackets rather
than curly brackets for the "a:visited" style.

Also, though I don't think it's affecting anything, I'm fairly sure you
don't need the colon after each style name.  You've got "a:link:",
"a:hover:" and "a:visited:", which only need to be "a:link", "a:hover" and
