    Can any one point me in the direction of a free service from Microsoft that
    can scan my emails for harmful emails and let me know which ones are harmful
    and disable them so to speak?

    I have Outlook Express 6.

    Thanks, Lee.

    web site.

    Microsoft making a program that would alert you to a harmful program
    on your computer.. hah.

    Your computer would never get past the "Loading Windows" screen.

    1. Set your email to read only text.
    2. Dont download attachments you are not expecting.
    3. Dont install viruses and trojans you get in emails.
