Today I received a dubious email, from a person unknown, to which a .zip file was attached, purporting to be a copy of an invoice. I saved the attachment, and then scanned it with Bitdefender and MBAM, both of which reported negative results. I then carefully opened (not extracted) the .zip file using SecureZip. There was a single file in the .zip container, which had a .js file extension (Java Script).
I don't have Java installed on my computer, but I took no chances, and used "Eraser" to shred the .zip file that I had saved in my "Downloads" folder and then deleted the email from my In-Box and Trash.
In my Windows 7 days, using Live Mail, I could right-click an email and display its properties to determine from whence it had originated, and other useful information, which was very helpful in determining the authenticity, and originator, of the email.
I did a few quick Google searches on the subject and found a few people asking the same question, but I did not find a satisfactory answer.
If it is not yet possible to view "Properties" using Windows 10 Mail, I sure hope that the folks at Microsoft enhance Windows 10 Mail soon to include that feature. As it is, it is a pretty bare-bones mail reader.
In the interim, is there a good mail reader, fully compatible with Windows 10, which will display email properties? I don't mind purchasing the software. I would rather be safe than sorry. As we all know, emails are great way to spread malware.
Thank you for any advice, suggestions, and/or answers. Have a great day.
