Let me clarify. As others have said, Linux systems are immune to Windows viruses. There are, however, a very few viruses written to attack Unix systems. When I get on my Linux system an email that I suspect contains a virus, I often will open it just out of curiosity. I would never do that from Windows unless I have the most current virus definitions and want to see what virus gets caught. I always wait a couple of days after the virus arrives to make sure the virus has had time to be added to the definitions supplied by my AV company. -- d On Sun, 2003-09-21 at 22:04, Douglas S.
