The current issue of PC Magazine has a section dedicated to "safe 
computing." It is interesting reading.

I think part of the problem is some e-mail programs (Outlook?) come 
with all the bells and whistles turned on, both on the send and 
recieve side of e-mail.  I certainly don't want my e-mailer to execute 
attachments automatically (like delete c:\*.*...) or whisk my browser 
off to some unknown Web site.

I suggest that anyone that did hear the music go into Preferences and 
Help to figure out what they need to turn off.  Personally I've used 
Pegsus Mail (freeware!) for many years and it behaves just fine.
