Just got a HTLM mail pretending to be from paypal.com
<a href="http://abc.de">http://paypal.com</a>

These could immediately be detected as fraud attempts - human visible text does not match the actual reference. Another case that should warn
* Indicating encryption when there is none
<a href="http://got.it">https://got.it</a>
* Misleading destination
<a href="http://got.it/fooled">http://got.it/this/time</a>

One mismatch that should be OK
* More specifik link than 
<a href="http://site.co.uk/link3">http://site.co.uk</a>

Reproducible: Didn't try

Expected Results:  
I would like thise links to be marked with a warning sign/frame/background.

It will be a good idea to implement it.

Hey, that's really cool! Thank you!

But please check out bug #324103 as this could lead to misunderstandings by people not being aware of technical details.
