I would imagine you could,but I am no expert on the subject,experience has led me to delete instantly, any emails that are not from people I know,especially when there are attachments or links to them.I have not had a chance yet to look at all the info on this,most of this type of virus can be deleted as long as you don,t open the email or attachments,most good antivirus software will check emails for virus infection,and also warn you about opening attachments.Its then down to you wether you open it or not,as I said if you don,t recognise who the email is from be very wary of opening iit Evil or Very Mad

This is nothing to do with fishing,but I decided to put this on here to warn members of a virus that has been detected by McAfee, the antivirus software company,who discovered this virus in the last few days.
The attachment is called - POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK ,its a virus that opens A POSTCARD IMAGE,which burns the whole hard disk 'C' of your computer.
If you recieve mail called POSTCARD,even if its been sent by a friend,DON'T OPEN IT !!.Shut DOWN your computer IMMEDIATELY.

This virus has been classed by Microsoft as the most destrucctive virus ever,and at present there is no solution to it.
If you can ,inform anyone on your email lists,therfore avoiding any heartaches or having to replace a fried hard drive.

Thanks go to Tony Nelson for providing the information,may save a lot of fried hard drives.
