I noticed that attacks are getting smarter and more targeted.

Previously the usual yada yada would come in (fake WeTranser / DHL etc.) 
but the attacks are now getting more serious by sending emails 
pretending to come from very specific companies we actually work with.

Because the attackers get smarter I would like to break all HTML links so 
nothing becomes clickable anymore (yes, I do understand that this will 
break pretty graphics in mailing lists, I don't care).

How to break links in a way that the any link doesn't work immediately 
in the browser will after manual intervention?

So change for example:
