Hi all, I just put up my first web page. I have an email link to my mail that my host provider gave me through their hosting. It's not connected to my regular email in Outlook Express. Since I am not opening it in Outlook Express, but on the internet, is it still connected to my computer in a way to give me a virus? To me it seems like it could, but I really don't know for sure. TIA

I should add to the post above. I bought & used First Website Builder. For me, This program was the one I could understand and learn from. I hope this post is in the right area. Thanks, Lin

Hi Lin,
Congratulations on your first site - I know how you feel!

You won't be able to get a virus from web-based email unless you actually download an infected message or attachment to your computer.

Have fun with your site,

Dianne R

Thanks Dianne, That makes sense to me. Wasn't sure though. Thanks for clearing that up for me. And Thanks for the cheers on the website. I was so happy finally getting a program I could understand. Been trying like for 6-8 months. First Website Builder makes it easy and fun! I really enjoy working on it now. (<8
