    I got this random email, w. the Title headshots that apparently missed the spam filter. I opened it because I used to be part of the gamin community and do sites, etc.
    So I open it, and it's some random email about a "dance instructor"

    Where I'm getting curious is that it had 3 pics attached. I didn't open them, but Gmail made previews. Do you think there was something wrong w. it?

    I've seen spam messages from before my Gmail's spam filter became so good, and I dont think any of em had images, at least more than one seeming relevent to pointless email that is.

    There is really no way to tell until the files are scanned. You can save the files to your computer and have them uploaded and scanned here:

    do not under any circumstances open any of them!

    hope this helps
