Why complicate things, use two mailto links.

I know that you got your answer but I think this code will help you more:

    <style type="text/css">
            .EMail_Link:hover
            {
                    background: yellow;
                    color: black;
            }
            .EMail_Link:active
            {
                    color: red;
            }
    </style>
    <label>
    To ensure that you continue receiving our emails, 
    <a href="mailto: my@email.com" class="EMail_Link">please add us to your address book</a>
    or
    <a href="mailto: my@email.com" class="EMail_Link">safe list</a>.
    </label>

<label> will change the cursor from IBeam to Arrow when you hover the text.
class="EMail_Link" will change link style.

Normal text will never be highlighted if you don't markup accordingly. So you need to markup all parts of the sentence to get highlighted.
