All articles on email hacking start (or end) with something about common sense implying that you never open an email attachment from somebody you don’t know, but what if your job requires you to do just that?
As a translator, I receive constantly files to translate, usually from translation agencies, but sometimes also directly from final users. I do check the source code etc. but now and then I open an email/email attachment and funny things starts happening (Internet gets very sluggish, other emails disappear into thin air etc.).
How do you minimize this kind of problem? Have a PC only for emails (with its own Internet connection) is an (expensive) possibility. Maybe a Linux-based email reader? Unfortunately, I have only a vague idea of what Linux is.
Any suggestion appreciated. Alex
