Walla! u bite the bate! So how u know that the hacker's is using your friend's email add. to send u Virus attachment? Or how the hack i know which attachment is really from my friend!

Is Very easy! 1st you need to do is... safe all your Friend email add. and put nick name for each of them! Then now If your friend did send u a msg or attachment, normally it will display your friend's nick name that u put!
