    MSN Email...... No Butterfly!

    I dont know if this is the right forum, sorry sorry if its not.

    Using hotmail, i recieved an email with the subject:

    "IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING YOUR ACCO..." <--- truncated because of lenght

    and the sender is : "MSN Member News"

    however, the symbol as you can see on the screenshot is nothing unusual.... however IME, any emails from MSN are accompanied by the Butterfly symbol... i havent opened it but i do want to see where its come from etc.... seems very suspicious..

    Suggestions??

    If anything ever seems suspicious then don't open it, opening it will either hurt you or disappoint you, or both
    if you really have to know check this out:

    I realise its spam, i just didnt think it was often they came with an MSN or M$ name..... in any case, i was just wondering what it is but of course i didnt open it

    will prolly just delete it, outa of sight out of mind.

    Well you could open the e-mail itself, don't download any attachments, e-mail spoofing is very easy, could be a spoof or phishing attempt !

    No that is always bad advice to give people. Get into the options in your account and just raise all (blocking/send to junk folder) type of options to its highest settings. If you get something from someone you don't know then just don't open it.

    Everyone has nailed "just don't download attachments" into people's heads for to long, to a point where they'd might actually feel safe enought to be blind folded while having thier hands tied when walking aimlessly towards |The|Specialist.
