In case you haven't noticed, there are a bunch of nasty viruses (or is it virii?) out there anxious to chomp and chew your system if you let them! Here's a neat one-two punch to help head many of them off at the pass before they even get to your system!

Step #1. Set your e-mail program to limit the size of each incoming message (ex. 40K). (see help files). This will keep larger messages and most messages with attachments on your provider's server while allowing you see the beginning of the text without letting most of the culprits onto your system.

Step #2. Set up Mail Washer, a neat little program that allows you review and delete e-mail messages before they even reach your computer. Often you can spot and zap virus-laden

messages by their size and subject line. And as a double bonus you can use this gem to trick spammers into thinking that your e-address is invalid!

This tip assumes that you have your anti-virus software up to date and running all the time. Use that as your main line of defense and these tricks to make your on-line life a little easier!
