Not so elegant
Authored by: Dephex Twin on Mar 23, '07 12:20:29PM

I would recommend that you never trust a URL that is a link in an HTML email. Always only trust the URL that Mail tells you when you hover over the link. A malicious email could easily write http://www.citibank.com/ and make it a clickable link, but have the actual link lead you to http://banklogininfo-emporium.com/. I have seen this technique employed in many phishing emails.

In fact, I did right now in this very post! Did I just blow your mind?

Dude, you blew my mind so hard that now I've got the munchies. Hmm, I wonder what's at the Hut?
