I'm working with a developer. In anticipation of a meeting this
afternoon, he sent me a code snip that I'd be using by pasting it in
the body of the email.

I have all my Outlook work emails forwarded to my personal Yahoo
account so I can access work emails from home without having to crank
up the VPN.

So...I'm staring at two email; the Outlook version on my desktop and
the Yahoo version on my laptop.

The Outlook version:

<a class="LoginText" href="javascript: void(0);"
onclick="window.open('Login_Forgotten_Pin.asp','Login_Forgotten_Pin','width=350,height=400,name=,status=0,scrollbars=1,resizable=1,toolbar=0,titlebar=0');">Reset
Pin</a>

The Yahoo version:

<a class="LoginText"
href="http://mail.yahoo.com/config/login?/_javascript: void(0);"
onfiltered="window.open('Login_Forgotten_Pin.asp','Login_Forgotten_Pin','width=350,height=400,name=,status=0,scrollbars=1,resizable=1,toolbar=0,titlebar=0');">Reset
Pin</a>

Notice anything? A hint..look at the code immediately after ...
LoginText" href=

I only bring this up because if anyone out there is using Yahoo mail
to send code back and forth between yourself and developers, don't
bet your life that what you are getting is what they are sending.
