Yet ANOTHER reason!
Yet ANOTHER reason to *NEVER* *VIEW* *MAIL* *AS* *HTML*.
because, scripting and style sheets are next. you KNOW it's coming! And embedded ADS in your e-mail, courtesy "whatever free e-mail service" you send/receive with.
Don't doubt me. Consider the following:
a) we can just block the web ads and still view the content
b) an operating system with ADS in it?
c) subscription-based OFFICE programs?
d) An annual fee just to use an OS?
I can see the possibility of click-through ads to view your e-mail (particularly with HTML mail viewers). Or, WORSE, click-through ads to SEND mail!
