    Cool Re: Will Mac get affected when opening an Email with virus?

    ================================================== ================================================== === Dear, For kind your information that there is no chance to get the virus from the mail. This is because when you attached the mail with some document,then the system also check whether it has virus or not, if virus is getting by the mail system,then it will not upload the file and reject the file. As same as,when you save the file from the mail,then system also check whether it has virus or not,otherwise find then it will reject to save. So there is no probability to get the virus from the mail server. ================================================== ================================================== =======

    well there is less chance of virus from email as we cant upload .exe files

    gmail provide scaning at the time of down load
    now this facility also available with yahoo
    but yes email is also one of the way to spread virus

    hope you got it
