My husband showed me how to check an email without opening it up -- perhaps
it's a well-known thing, but I do it to check an email if I'm not sure of
its source or its content -- We have Outlook Express. While it's still in
my inbox, I right-click on the email. This brings up a menu box, at the
bottom of which is "properties". I click on that (left click, I think!) and
a box pops up which has tabs for general information and details. I click
on details and then "message source". It will usually show the text of the

inbox (so, I assume that it hasn't been able to go anywhere to infect
anything .. yes, I'm naive...) Not sure if this would help if it looks like
it comes from someone you know (like your email "from" Sharon....
