Couple of things. First, what option do you click on after you read the 1st e-mail that shows you the next one? I usually click on delete and it takes me back to the inbox page where I can then select another mail to review.

I'd also like to add the the most all e-mail viruses are delivered via an attachment that you must open; it does not open automaticly when you read an e-mail. So, to be safe, I always save any attached file I recieve for scanning before I open it. So, if you don't open attachments, you will be mostly safe.

I know. I know. Hotmail says it scans attachments with McAfee and everything is ok. Don't trust that scan, it does not catch many viruses!
