A short overview of how the different email clients (in the supported list of Microsoft) are reacting to the animated cursor vulnerability (CVE-2007-1765) depending on the actions and settings of the email client.
The surprising element is that read in plain text mode makes some of the clients more vulnerable and actually only offers real added value -for this vulnerability- for Outlook 2003.
(*) It does interact with the user before being vulnerable, but we all know what typical users would do.
