A developer concerned that this misconception will spread across the internet has sent us this video (which we uploaded, apologies for the rotation) showing how HTML e-mail is handled in Windows Phone 7, and also showing the simple process of searching e-mail.
Both are handled in exactly the same way as on Windows Mobile, in particular the user still has to request to download pictures â€“ an annoying but security conscious feature in Windows Phone 7 which we have covered here previously.
Do our readers think Microsoft should allow pictures to be downloaded by default, to prevent this misconception from occurring? Let us know below.
Edit: Â Brandon from Pocketnow clarifies:
The particular build we are running does NOT have the option to â€œshow picturesâ€ and thus download HTML content.
