!!!You Have Been Challenged!!!

Someone Thinks You Are Dumb – Take The Quiz and Prove Them Wrong!

Challenge

Okay, I’ll play along..
1) I don’t know who sent it.
2) It has an attachment.
3) They are playing on my ego and vanity. (the next two play on Greed)

4) I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I ain’t “dumb” enough to open ANY of these three.

This is why you want to turn off the “Preview pane” in your webmail, and e-mail client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.). As the top entry in my Inbox, the Preview feature would open this e-mail and show me the first few lines … telling these spamming SOB’s that my address was a ‘keeper’, automatically.

Please see, Outlook as a security risk for how to disable this neato ‘feature’ you don’t need and really don’t want (IMHO).
