    I know this off topic, but to get those computer viruses, you must open the email and download the attachment, right? If I just delete the emails right away I should be alright?

    Correct.

    If it's a *.exe file, you must execute the file to launch the virus. If it's a *.txt file, you must launch a text editor to initiate the virus. Same goes for other file types that these ass clowns may use to infect people.

    If you get the email in, delete it and you'll be fine. Just don't execute that file.
