For the record:

	some email readers (usually the ones that run HTML style like Netscape & IE)
have an option to run programs/open attachments automatically.  As long as your reader
is set to copy to disk rather than auto-open, the files can't do anything to you.
Or so I was told by a friend of mine at CERT.
