    Opening Attachments

    You don't have to open an attachment to get infected with a virus in the 21 century. That was last century. If you are using outlook than they can spread the virus thorugh the preview pane which basically means that you get the virus automatically.

    This issue is the greatest concern. We have stable operating systems now but we do not have operating systems that protect people from virii.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    Switch to Eudora or some other email client. OE is crap and the main reason why people get viruses.

    I'm currently waiting for an email, but i'll look into other options soon. I was thinking of using hotmail but I could try Eudora.

    >i havn' tgot a virus from hotmail yet.

    All atachments are scanded from virus. Funny though they use Macfe (I belive) witch is free, not notron witch cost monney but is better. (or so I have heard)

    BTW I love hotmail exept for that banner they put on the top of web pages when you click a link in your email, but I hate outlook.

    Yahoo mail shiits all over hotmail. 6Mb from Y! 1.44Mb from MS. Plus it also has a virus scanner, junk mail and heaps of other features.

    *sigh*

    LEARN.
    Preview is a feature. If it's dangerous, SHUT IT OFF !!!
    If you don't like scripting in your emails, SHUT IT OFF !!!

    How can you dare call a tool crap if you don't learn to use it ???

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Then you will have to either take the risk, or use inferior tools.
    Your decision.

    Then you will have to learn... no matter what tool you use, if you
    want to use it's full potential, you will have to learn to use it.
