Thread: secure way to open spam mail ?

    Default secure way to open spam mail ?

    I know it is recommended to not open it but is it possible under certain circumstances to open it without risking anything ?

    Default Re: secure way to open spam mail ?

    I guess that not interpreting it as HTML is rather save (something you should have on as default in your e-mail program IMHO).

    And when you interprete it as HTML, block all scripting.

    Of course your system is always rather save, because you open mail as a normal user and whatever will happen to that normal user will never happen to system software.

    BTW, most spam I get is already moved to a spam box at my provider and his algorithms are rather good. Thus I only look at them using web mail and not on my system at all.
