  1. check this out, my first time ever getting this sort of attachment with the "Delivery Status Notification (failure)"

    I get those normally if my message didn't went through, good thing I wasn't sleepy and accidentally click on it. I wonder what happen if i do click on it?

    Hi,

    Use your antivirus software to scan the file. Normally, antivirus software will scan it before the mail is opened. If you are unsure, and the sender is foreign to you, delete immediately. Otherwise, ask the sender if he did send such a file, and if it is safe to open.

    Such attachments could very well contain trojans/worms/viruses etc.


    Regards,
    Your friendly momok =)
