Email safety rules

The number one rule is use common sense

So, let's review the rules for safe email:
  • Keep your versions of Windows, your browser, and your email program up to date with the latest patches.
  • Run appropriate anti-malware software to help keep your system clean.
  • Keep your anti-malware software up to date and most importantly, allow them to keep their databases of malware information as up to date as possible as well.
  • Never open an attachment unless you expect it, you're positive you know what it is, and that you trust the sender.
  • Never click on a link in an email message unless you're positive you know where it's going and that you trust the sender
