Agent · Safe HTML


Most Windows programs that display HTML use an embedded copy of Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE). However, this approach exposes the application to all of the security problems associated with Internet Explorer. So, we built our own HTML display engine. This ensures that you can view HTML in Agent safely.

HTML Image Downloads

You can tell Agent to only download HTML images from trusted contacts. Junk mailers frequently use a technique called phoning home. For those contacts, Agent warns you if remote images are in the message and gives you the option of manually downloading them.

Trusted Contacts

Instead of always downloading images manually, you can "Allow Image Downloads" for a trusted contact. Agent stores that knowledge in the address book so that all future messages from that contact will download the images automatically.
