On my birthday, of all days, I received an e mail that looked suspecious in Outlook 6. I wanted to delete it but didn't know how to do so without first highlighting the notice. Once highlighted, the messge opens automatically. I puzzled over this and finally decided I might be able to highlight the notice and quickly delete it before any damage was done. Once highlighted Norton anti virus immediately displayed the virus alert window and I used this to dispose of the file. Is there any way to delete a suspecious e mail messaage BEFORE opening (highlighting) it?
