    Deleting Emails
    I have received an email in my .Mac account which I believe contains a virus (subsequently warned by the sender). How can I delete it without opening it? As soon as I click on my mails they open up.

    Usually (OK, I've Never heard otherwise) you have to open the link or file within the email to have a problem - it's not just looking at the email that causes propagation.

    You could try right-clicking on it to see if it gives you the option to delete without opening. But, as was stated by gsahli, shouldn't be an issue anyway.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I edited the title of the thread to something more descriptive since your user name doesn't tell us much.
