Doesn't seem to be a problem in Outlook 2003. I made one for
http://www.vncscan.com and then followed your instructions to change it
to www.hackme.com and it still went to hackme.com.

Subject: Security issue in Microsoft Outlook
An issue has been discovered in MS Outlook (All
Versions) where anyone can fake a URL & send it across.
How does it work:
Lets compose an email in MS Outlook, lets type
http://www.cybertrion.com & put a space after it to make it a
link. Now put your cursor just before cybertrion & type any
URL for eg:
http://www.foo-labs.info now send it to anyone. The receiver
will see the URL as http://www.foo-labs.info but when he
clicks on it it will directly take him to http://www.cybertrion.com
I am not sure how critical this is but it can fool alot of
people & result in download of a virus.
