Even Outlook Express has no images by default. You can even view in plain text if you want, but increasingly those sending out emails tend to either not include a text version at all or you find huge links cluttering up the text if you try to read them, so in my view its laziness of email program senders that are probably worst of all. If everyone used text and visible links then hidden links of malicious intent would never get past the first read through.

When is the last time you saw a credible report, or even a questionable one, about vulnerabilities in an e-mail program being hacked to spread malware? It is important to use current versions of browsers but I very much question that it matters much with e-mail programs unless, perhaps they are very old. With all the people on lists we follow who use Outlook Express, a very old program, however, I have never seen one report on lists or anywhere else of malicious e-mail being used to infect machines with that program or other perhaps more vulnerable programs. If a program is too old, it may not have good default security settings. For example, it may automatically download images, which is a security risk. That should be turned off. I would use effective security settings with e-mail programs. Why invite trouble? But I question that malicious code in e-mails is much of a problem. Others may disagree and may have factual information about this but from what I've observed for a long time, this is what I think currently.

SECURITY SECURITY SECURITY!


Failing to update programs that regularly access the Internet such as
mail programs endangers your system. Many updates involving patching
security holes and/or protection against new threats in the wild such as
Trojans and root kits.

hello every one.
as you know, firefox quantum with multiprocess support, caused many
issues, slowness, crashes or instibilities for screen reader users.
i am curious and wish that know, does thunderbird 60 has the issues of
firefox quantum which i mentioned?
thunderbird 60 like new versions of firefox, support photon and
quantum css, but fortunately does not support multiprocess until now.
