It can *optionally* use the IE HTML renderer. It can be turned off, as can all automation. With these options off Eudora is not automatable so not susceptible to virii.
I use Eudora, and I keep the "Microsoft Viewer" turned off. Besides the virus security problem, there is also the spam-receipt verification problem, where a link in the mail is coded to transmit the e-mail's address, thus revealing to the spammer that the mail was received, not something I like to do.

I think the option is on (use IE HTML viewer) by default - I think this should be off by default.
I'd agree. Perhaps Qualcomm will get around to it.
