Microsoft Outlook uses HTML to display its messages, this is just a feature
of that. No different than setting up link redirection and hiding the
ultimate destination on a webpage. Additionally it is simliar to having the
alternate text, address and extra info about a link modified in the status
bar of a browser.
I see no security problem here, and if you feel like avoiding this problem
completely just disable theh display of HTML code in the messages you
recieve with Microsoft Outlook.
