Thanx for the tips Bill, since I'm not using Outlook (IMHO it's a security
risk) it would take me some time to go through the settings, but sure I'd
done it.

Do you know if this blocks also the messages with v-cards (business cards -
what ever) attached to the message?

another setting you might want to check is 'macro settings' of your email
software - I know there's a setting in Outlook for protection level
(Tools/Macro/Protection(?) or similar) where you can determine wether
macros are executed or not.

Hope you all can setup your system to be as safe as possible.
