    If you have no idea who ANY email is from, then delete it without opening it. It's hardly gunna be an email telling you that you've won lotto or your granny has died, or an "I really didn't mean to dump you, will you marry me", from that long lost love from high school!! :cry:

    If in doubt, chuck it out.

    But.... some people just have to let curiosity get the better of them, don't they. :rolleyes:
