RE: Security issue in Microsoft Outlook

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.
