This isn't a library question, but we have so many computer savvy people on
the list I am sure someone can relieve my ignorance.  Many of the emails I
receive on the list seem to have attachments which my program offers me the
chance to download.  However, the messages themselves seem to be complete and
usually have no reference to downloading anything.  I never download these
things on the grounds that there may be something infesting them.  Am I being
paranoid? Is this just a way to download the email itself without all the
routing stuff?  If anyone could clear this up for me, I would appreciate it.
TIA
