E-mail question

 Is there a way I can safely open e-mail, sent from someone I don't know?  Is viewing the message using the Preview Pane option, considered safe or is that just letting the PC open my mail for me?  I send out reminders about our club meeting dates, meeting notes and useful information about our club activities, to club members.  I don't want to miss any legit request about joining our club, from people I don't know, so how can I safely view the e-mail message?  With the e-mail account I am using, I don't think I can save the message to my desktop and then scan it with Norton.  I know better than to open an attachment, from unknown users, so I think I am safe there.

Re: E-mail question

Your email is scanned for visuses when it comes in provided you have Norton set to scan incoming mail. The only issue you could have is if there are web links in the emails that could be leading to malware infected web sites.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.  I know Nortons scans the e-mail messages that come to my Outlook account.  Does this scan also work for e-mail accounts that I just log into their server and are not kept on or downloaded to my PC?

That will get protected by Norton as it does any other Internet access.
