I have been following the discussion regarding the remote image handling now available in IER 184.108.40.206, specifically the ability to grant permissions that allow images from sources that are different from the sending source (eg: allowing redirection for image loading). When I think about this, I envision that it mostly pertains to ads and newsletters made up of synopsis/hyperlinks to articles from different sources. I believe that loading these images encourages the clicking of email links. When I managed a multi-user enterprise installation of Pegasus Mail I worked very hard to discourage hyperlink clickers. I did not train users on how to allow remote graphics instead showing them how to open messages in a browser. I know that things are changing and that I no longer attempt to keep up so would love to see a discussion today about whether clicking links in emails is any more hazardous than clicking the same links from within a browser. Forget about the convenience factor, just from a security standpoint, do browsers provide any additional security over what IERenderer provides with all of its security options enabled?
