      See:

      http://www.snopes. com/computer/ virus/postcard. asp

      Almost at the very bottom of that page is precisely the text of the
      message you received.

      In brief, there's a mixture of fact and fiction.

      My advice:

      1. Always have your email reader set *not* to display messages in HTML,
      if that option is available (it is in Mozilla Thunderbird and probably
      in SeaMonkey). That way you can see if the link is really to the site
      mentioned in the text.

      2. Use decent anti-virus software (and there's far better than Norton)
      and update it frequently.

      3. Better still, don't use a Windozzze machine for email.

      to see if it was possible)
