[SOLVED] Disable Links and External Content in Quarantine Viewers?

I opened an email in the Spam Quarantine area. I noticed that the "Selected Mail" display pane on the right is rendering links as clickable and appears to be loading external content. Is there a way to prevent allowing links to be clickable and to prevent loading external content?

The emails in this quarantine are fundamentally considered harmful in some way due to scoring, so preventing clickable links as well as not loading external content are both good best practices.

Is there a setting somewhere that I have missed?
Can you check your quarantine settings I think this is it:

Configuration - Spam Detector - Quarantine - View images - No
Configuration - Spam Detector - Quarantine - Allow HREFs - No

after changing restart and test. let me know if it helps.
Fantastic. These are exactly the settings that I was looking for. Thank you!

Side note: the same pair of settings exist and are good to set in the Virus Detector Quarantine.
