I receive and send email via Outlook Express. I only open email that I receive from individuals I know and trust. However, there are times that I receive email from individuals involved in groups that I belong to. Sometimes I do not recognize these emails but suspicion they are legitimate. If I have any doubts I have taken to reviewing the email properties to see if I recognize the individual. My virus checker is configured to check email. Is this a safe practice or am I fooling myself. As always any replies will be appreciated and I thank you in advance.
