    The following email was sent to me - and opened on my Iphone 5 web broswer - Safari. I launched the hyperlink and was not able to go any further (for obvious reasons!).

    Does anyone know if this action was affect the security settings or information in the cell phone? The name of the hyper link was:
    h??p://guckert-einrichtungen.de/job?php=receipt

    Sender (most likely not) was: [noparse]client.457@spokane.com[/noparse]

    Contents of the email:


    FedEx

    Order: SD-5468-482485468
    Order Date: Monday, 2 December 2012, 11:23 AM

    That's not necessary for iOS. It was an iPhone.
