New version of PocketKnife peek

This free utility has long been one my favorite Outlook add-ins. It works by adding a button to the tool bar which, when pressed, opens any HTML message as text. This allows you to safely open any unknown message without fear of triggering a hostile script or web bug. PKP also allows you to easily examine the full message headers, which can be very useful at times. The latest version of PKP now lists all email attachments including the full contents of attached ZIP archives. A neat feature is that attachment file names are shown with embedded blanks deleted, thus eliminating one of the common ways of disguising an attachment?s true file type.  A must for every Outlook user. Free for personal use, 520KB.
