I've got Outlook Express 6 and occasionally I get what is obviously a spam email. When this happens, I like to add the sender's email (or domain), as well as the return-path email (or domain) to my Blocked Sender's List on my dial-up provider's Webmail Spam Filter.
So when I get one of these messages, I right-click on it and choose Properties. The Details tab, of course, gives you all that information, but sometimes I also click on Message Source at the bottom of the Details tab to see if there are any other email addresses or domains listed in there that I can block. (Actually, you can usually get all the information from the Details tab, so I really didn't mean to click the Message Source this time...)
So I'm wondering if everything I've described above is 100% safe to do on a potentially harmful email (whether it may have a virus attached or anything bad that can come with a harmful email)...?
And, specifically, can it be harmful to click the Message Source in Properties > Details on an email if there happens to be a virus or anything bad in it or attached to it? Can anything get onto your computer by doing that?
