Initially it defaults to blocking attachments, images and links, for 'my safety'
Fair enough. So you select 'Show Content'
So, now you can see it's version of the HTML (a far cry from what IE or FireFox show, but still...)
Even though you have already decided to 'Show Content' it now has a warning symbol regarding the sender, giving me the chance to 'Mark as safe' or 'Mark as unsafe'
I select 'Mark as safe' - so for a second time I tell Hotmail that yep, I want this e-mail.
Now, it deems it nessecary to add another message at the top of the e-mail : You're subscribed to this mailing list. Unsubscribe'
It is being clever and just replicating the Unsubscribe link I have at the very top, and very bottom, of my newsletter, which I guess is handy and keeps the unsubscribe method consistant.
However, when you go to use the Unsubscribe. This is what it says :
We'll tell the sender that you don't want to be on this mailing list, though it may take them up to ten days to remove you. We may also share this e-mail with companies who help us fight junk
My bold. I could not believe I was reading that!! It's like they are determined to make the end reader report an e-mail they subscribed to as junk/spam!
