Email has become the main entry point for viruses and worms. Inboxes are full of infected emails, and new contaminants are popping up every day. While anti-virus programs can reduce the risk, they cannot eliminate it altogether. It is therefore important to change your behaviour and the programs you use to take account of these threats.

Here, you will find everything you need to know to protect yourself from the flood of viruses. The section More info describes the possible risks, such as HTML emails and file attachments. Under Changing settings, we show you how to configure your email program to make it secure. Under Test emails, you can have emails sent to you that will reveal typical weak points without causing any damage.
