There is so much spam, worm and viruses flowing at the net now, that the
rule is not to open anything unless you're really sure it's from the
right sender. I'm only 100% sure it's form the right sender when she/he
writes about something I know she/he would write about, or if the
message is PGP signed.

I really hope PGP and GPG becomes more popular. If it does I will
configure my system to only accept mail with good PGP signature.

In the future worms may be even more advanced and the content of the
mail will simulate a body text based on previous mails from that sender.

Thanks for the worning anyway,

seriously thinking of quiting all use of computers. Maybe I can get a
life ;-)
