1853. Network Solutions: Safe email?

Is Network Solutions email virus protection really working? :

I have seen email viruses on emails from many different email providers. Network solutions is not necessarily any better or worse than others.

I have had a recent experience with an email received via Network Solutions. It contained an attachment that had a .VBS extension. It was definitly a virus.

No matter who is handling your email, if the attachment is any of the executable types, like .exe, .com, and .vbs don't open them.

And if you don't know the person sending the email don't open them.

You can usually set your email program like Thunderbird or Outlook to not even allow you to receive emails with those attachment types. Be careful. Save the attachment to disk and scan it with your antivirus program. If you don't, don't open it!
