How to Make Previewing Mail More Secure in IncrediMail

By

I read most of my mail in the IncrediMail preview pane. It's just too convenient.

Fortunately, my security-conscious self, which pointed to the long list of viruses and worms spreading by exploiting preview panes, could be reassured, too, by making the preview pane a bit more secure.

In IncrediMail, shy of hiding the preview pane altogether, you can disable all scripts from being run by just reading a mail in the preview pane. Scripts in emails are never essential and hardly ever needed. So you will not lose any functionality by turning them off but only gain security.
