THanks Malke. I use yahoo to read email. And it has not said anything at
all- I know that with yahoo, to open an email that has an attatchment, you
have the option to scan before you open & download-It warned me of netsky

check my email at yahoo ( emails that do not have attatchments). I heard
that it is not possible. any more tips you can give???
