Keep your email friends safe.

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I remember when I used to be on AOL, a friend informed me that I should list aaaa-aaaa as the first email on my address book. The reason why is because if a virus comes into your email, it will stop at aaaa-aaaa and not continue on to your friends. I have had this on my email for years, even after going to Comcast. Lately, because of friends emailing me and telling me what is happening to their email friends, I thought it might be a good idea to get the word out to everyone to protect their friends' emails. After a friend informed me of this happening, I notice a bunch of emails I never even heard of, enter my email box, but quickly they were deleated. So do your email friends a favor and get the words out and protect them.

    Any effort to protect ourselves is valuable, but be careful relying on this one.
This suggestion has been around for at least 10 years, but snopes and antivirus sites have a different opinion.
