Handling Emails

Today, email is a common way of communicating with other people. It is very convenient, but it also poses threats to your computer system.

DO'S
  • Do scan all email attachments for viruses before opening them, especially those files with extensions .exe, .com, .doc, etc.

  • Do disable automatic processing of email attachments in your Internet email software.

  • Do consider controlling spam by using email filtering software that allow users to block or screen out spam using simple filtering rules.

  • Do use separate email addresses for different purposes whenever feasible.

DON'TS
  • Don't open or forward emails and email attachments from unknown sources.

  • Don't mail-bomb, forward or reply to junk email or hoax messages. This may result in more incoming junk email than before.

  • Don't respond to emails from unknown senders.

  • Don't expose your email address on public websites such as search engines, contact directories, membership directories, newsgroup postings or chat rooms.

  • Don't use an email address that contains any potential dictionary entries or common names.

  • Don't forward chain email messages.
