    So, I have a further Google related comment that just came to mind. I have been using Gmail for about about four years now and haven't had any issues with it until recently. But now two of my contacts, also on Gmail, have had thier accounts hijacked (I think?) and unintentionally sent me 'follow this link' emails which I assume might lead to malware or a virus. My other email option at the moment is the personalised email address related to my .com domain from these guys (not sure if you need the link to answer my question, but there it is!) which I haven't really used so far. In general, is this type of email hosting safer than web-based hosting?
    Also: thinking about a SpyBot / McAfee email security combo...

    thanks!! carol(ling)

    I'm not familiar with 1and1 email options,that's the first I've heard of 1and1 itself,so I can't really comment on it's safety.That's not to say it is or isn't better,just that I'm totally unfamiliar with it.
    If you scroll down to the 'How secure is my data when I get an email address with 1&1 Mail Basic & Mail Business?' section on the page,it tells how it employs full SSL-certified encryption:

    For gmail,there is a security checklist here:

    But now two of my contacts, also on Gmail, have had thier accounts hijacked (I think?) and unintentionally sent me 'follow this link' emails which I assume might lead to malware or a virus.
    This might be helpful for those two contacts,if you wish to send it to them,especially the 'My contacts say I sent spam to them, or I found suspicious access to my account':

    Default Still no immunisation

    I hope that in the near future support for GC will be available. I really prefer this browser since it's almost bug free ( I never had problems with it), has good addons and is probably the fastest browser available.
