Saving an Attachment

You often receive messages that have files or other items attached to them, such as documents or pictures. In the Inbox list of messages, a paper clip icon beside the message subject represents the presence of an attachment. You can save any attachments sent to you so that you can open, modify, print, or otherwise use the attached document or image. Messages can contain multiple attachments.

What About Viruses? Unfortunately, there is a chance that an attachment to a message can be a virus or other malicious software. Computer viruses can really wreak havoc on your computer system. When you receive an e-mail message from someone you don't know and that message has an attachment, the best thing to do is delete the message without opening it or the attachment. Detecting questionable mail is difficult; mail with no body text or a vague subject can be good indicators that a mail message contains a malicious attachment. You can also check questionable attachments with an antivirus program before you open the file.
