Email Safety

Ever get an attachment? Of course you have…

How do you handle attachments?

If you don’t know the sender, the answer is easy…

DELETE IT!!!!

What about when it’s from someone you know? (that’s the hard one)

Proceed with caution…

Here is how:

1) Save the file FIRST!!

2) Run an anti-virus scan on it (if it doesn’t automatically)

3) Open with caution.

4) Delete the file, if you don’t need it.

5) Run virus scan once a week (more if you download lots of attachments)

I hope these tips help, until next time.
