This ever happen to you???
I had 3 windows open on my desk top this morning. I sent an article from DU to my daughter (one she would be interested in regarding Healthcare). I pasted the link to my yahoo email account and sent it off to her. I shrunk the window and continued to read some more articles here on DU. After about 20 minutes or so I restored the yahoo mail window to see if she answered my email. Well, the yahoo inbox window was LONG in responding to reopen and when it finally did there was in my inbox (under sender) a bunch of numbers (10 or so) followed by mediamail. att. (with a GREEN forward arrow) and before I had a chance to click on it....it disappeared. Period...gone and not to be found anywhere. hummmmm...am I being paranoid?

2. it sounds like the email bounced
but there are spam messages that are crafted to appear like a bounced message too.

5. No - that is what you do when the nukes go off.
Just go shopping and don't worry about it.

6. I almost NEVER use a webmail interface, preferring instead ...

... to use a standard mail client and set the options to NOT render the HTML. I regard that as "safe computing" and don't expect my virus-check software to protect me from my own foolishness. I have not yet had a virus infection in nearly 30 years of personal computer online usage. (Going back to Z80 bigboard days.)
