I've just had a reply to a response to an enquiry and noticed something I haven't seen before in the "quoted" part of the message.

I use gmail. So, I have a "conversation" view:
My original message of a few days ago,
The guest's response (including my previous message as quoted).

All normal so far.

But looking at the quoted previous message, I see that the links which I gave in my initial response have been expanded into snippets of the web page, including a picture in one case. It actually looks rather good and I think it would reassure the guest that the links are safe (assuming that they see it like that).

But I've never seen this before. The guest has a hotmail.com email address. Does Hotmail do this link expansion?

Had the very same from a reply at weekend, a hotmail email address, so it seems to be perfectly normal.

I noticed an odd thing the other day. After browsing a website (I was looking for travel cots and had looked at several sites), I received an email from them titled 'browse our huge range' and it showed some of the items id looked at! I'm not registered with this site and had disclosed my email address!
