Re: virus alert

Opening an e-mail that is text (like your message below) is okay.  You
cannot get a virus from that.  Where you CAN get a virus is from EXECUTABLE
files--files that you click on and start a program.  They often have an
"exe" extension.  Do not ever open those unless you know the sender knows
what he/she is doing.

It is a good idea also to get a good antivirus program.
