That's why I check my email at the website.  Don't have to worry 
about buggy email.  

My f-i-l had a good suggestion for protecting against bugs:

First: .......... Open your address book and click on "new contact" 
or "new person" just as you would do if you were adding a new friend 
to your list of e-mail addresses.
        Second:  ............ In the window where you would type your 
friend's FIRST name, type in !000  (that's an exclamation mark 
followed by 3 zeros).
        In the window below where it prompts you to enter the new e-
mail address, type in WormAlert@any,com  
        Third:  ............ Then complete everything by clicking 
add, enter, OK, etc.
        Now, here's what you've done and why it works: the "name" !
000 will be placed at the top of your address book as entry #1.  This 
will be where the worm will start in an effort to send itself to all 
your friends.  But when it tries to send itself to !000, it will be 
undeliverable because of the phony e-mail address you entered 
(WormAlert).  If the first attempt fails (which it will because of 
the phony address), the worm goes no further and your friends will 
not be infected.
        Here's the second great advantage of the method: If an e-mail 
cannot be delivered, you will be notified of this in your InBox 
almost immediately. Hence, if you ever get an e-mail telling you that 
an e-mail addressed to WormAlert could not be delivered, you know 
right away that you have the worm virus in your system.  You can then 
take steps to get rid of it.
