Hello This is my first post and I was referred here because there were a lot of experts who could address my concerns
I had a question about email, specifically about whether I can catch something nasty just by opening or previewing an email. I know to never click on an unknown link, but on rare occasions, I get emails from an address that looks legitimate. I click on it and if I see a link or if it just basically says a bunch of nonsense, I automatically delete it or mark it as junk. Is it possible to catch a virus/Trojan/malware from text in the email (I'm not the smartest on computers so I don't know whether people can hide stuff in a message).
I have Norton Internet Security 2013 and believe that it offers some email security protection but I know that all security software is not 100% so just wanted to hear from the experts here on what I can do to enhance my email protection.
Thanks a lot for your help/advice.
