    Re: (ADMIN) Linked files vs Attached files, and a scam
    From: Gary LaPook

    This is really confusing. I did another test using this message:
    
    http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=114164
    
    There is a URL near the beginning of the message
    (http://gagocoutinho.wordpress.com) that does not show as a link in
    Firefox or in Internet Explorer but comes up as a link when reading my
    email with Firefox, just like with the previous test. But now, contrary
    to the first test, it does come up as a link in Thunderbird!
    
    Also, at the bottom of the message there is a link to the file I had
    attached and this comes up as a link in both Firefox and Internet
    Explorer so, in the same message, on URL comes up as a link and on doesn't!
