The keyword green #008000 should be OK.  #00FF00 would be too light.

It also depends on the font size.

A border on the DIV for the links might be better current practice.

Although usability, rather than accessibility, I would distinguish 
visited links if you expect users to visit your page more than once, or 
follow more than one link.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
