    Developed by Mike Cardwell, the website below throws some very common attack vectors and tracking methods used by spammers and exploiters who try to trick users into giving up information through email. You can watch live if any exploits are triggered and the information pulled from it.

    I am pleased to know both my outlook 2010 and gmail interfaces passed with flying colors. :)

    Feel free to give it a go at this address -https://emailprivacytester.com/-

    Nice. Opening up in my webmail client on Firefox showed all gray. Request Policy was blocking everything. Then I allowed it through Request Policy and half the page lit up in red. So Request Policy is a good add-on to have.

    PD

    Yes Request Policy is a very good add-on to use in conjunction with NoScript for Firefox.

    Using hotmail I was able to open and view the email without setting off any of the tests. I even allowed Javascript from the testing site in RequestPolicy and NoScript, tried clicking Show Content to see if that altered anything. Nothing ever did.
