  • E-mail your e-Buddy from anywhere, even if you don't have access to your regular e-mail account!

Security Reminder: E-mail Attachments

Just a quick reminder: according to the e-Buddies Code of Conduct, e-Buddies participants are not permitted to send e-mail attachments, including pictures, to their e-Buddy.

One reason for this is that e-mail attachments can sometimes contain computer viruses; by clicking on any e-mail attachment, there is a risk that you could be exposing your computer to a virus.

Before you open ANY attachment, always make sure that you are certain that the attachment was sent from someone you know. If possible, scan that file with a fully updated anti-virus program. Never open attachments from people you don’t know!
