Since you specifically refer to Windows Mail as the supposedly problematic utility, I'll comment on Windows Mail specifically.
But first, I'll comment on risks....
--- one of the most likely vectors of malware and crapware links is content that is displayed in .htm or html
Therefore, a good question might be: "Why on earth would a person wish to enable viewing such content on a default basis?"
Windows Mail - Tool - Options - Security(tab) has .html set as "block images and other external content in HTML e-mail.
In my opinion, this is sensible.
Sure, you may miss some of the pretty pictures and enticing advertisements and colorful components such as "stationary", but in my mind that is a small loss in favor of better security.
Your cousin probably just has Windows Mail set to default settings.
