Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

As it should from a handholding security point of view.
No nasty links you can click on might save your day. As in not being phished.

I think that may be going a bit too far - personally at least, I find quite a bit of utility to links in EMail (even when the messages themselves are displayed as text, but URLs are rendered as links). It would probably cost me at least an extra half an hour every work day with copy-pasting.

I guess an argument could be made for disabling that feature as the default - but I've found similar "security features" in Microsoft Products (E.g., attachment blocking) to be more hassle than they're worth. I can't count the number of times I've walked people through disabling attachment blocking over the phone - just so they could access legit/desired attachments. Although that does seem to be par-for-the-course with the new Microsoft security philosophy of "escaped horse, meet iron-clad, barred, and triple-locked barn door."
