Viruses are designed to exploit security holes in popular email programs
(primarily Mircrosoft products).
So the answer is "Yes you can get a virus, if your email software is
vunerable. You do not need to run an attachemnt to catch the virus.
The vunerability lies in the preview feature.
If you are not running virus protection software, or having your ISP
screen all your incoming email for virus, you are at risk.
