Are we back to these messages in this forum? As I really little Greek, I'm content to lurk and try to glean what I can from these discussions.
In any event, e-mail messages are text only. Computer viruses are computer code. Because of this difference, it is impossible to send a virus through e-mail channels in the manner that George's post decribes.
The only way to send a virus through e-mail is to send an affected program file as an attachment. But merely opening the main body of any e-mail message will not cause any virus to do its dirty work.
