    Nope, and I don't expect to be. I keep my security updated and current and I never open anything if I don't know exactly what it is and where it's come from.

    No, I have not,

    I am on a number of corporate mailing lists and a few friend's ones...........but I guess they mostly e-mail from work?..............one up for the Sysadmins I would say

    CYB3RJ3DI, Please do not take this as a criticism, but a question of this type would be better asked in a poll...............that way you will get a statistically viable response and only comments that are additional to the question

    Cheers

    Me neither, that is a miracle because i don't have ANY, and i mean ANY protection at all. When i get something i try to play with it and delete it manually, if not than AV's come handy.

    Nope never had any type of virus in my email inbox. even if there was one my antivirus takes care of it and as a added precaution I have the preview pane turned off and set not to allow downloading attachments of any kind.
