Hi Bernard,
Since switching to high speed I noticed way more emails that were clearly dubious, mostly the oneliners with an attachment, and the long rambling solicitous ones that want money. I'm told that there are programs that automatically, once set in motion, search the net for addresses. Once such a program finds you, that's it. I also get about 10 a day of these annoying emails. They are deleted immediately as they are quite obvious. When I do get an email with an attachment that is legit, the person writing the email has expicitly said what is in it and that it is not a virus, and has provided the option of checking with them first by phone or email before opening. That action seems to have become common courtesy nowdays.
Cheers,
Diane
