I recently had an e-mail that was supposedly returned from Mailer Daemon. Since I didn't recall sending out an e-mail that day, I right clicked the Properties/Details/Message source and found out it was an e-mail that I had sent out 2 days earlier, but had misspelled the correct e-mail address. I don't know why it took 2 days to be returned, but it got me thinking about the practice of using properties to find out information about an e-mail that might be questionable.
My question is if I get an e-mail with a virus and I right click on Properties/Details/Message Source am I actually opening it and therefore vulnerable or is this a safe practice?
Sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but I'm not very computer literate.
Thanks in advance,
