- Dec 20, 2012Just as a note, you cannot be hacked from viewing an email. You need to
execute, or take an action, for a virus to infect your computer. Yahoo
had a load of accounts hacked recently...the hackers are not only using
the actual yahoo accounts to send out their emails, but they are also
using the names of people to send out emails from 'other' addresses. I
randomly get emails from friends who are in yahoo groups with me, but do
not use yahoo email addresses...it is their name, but is not from any
email address they are connected to.
