Anti Virus Question

AOL now scan all e-mail attachments, both in and out, which is a good service I think.

My question though is -- are viruses always in attachments rather than in the e-mails themselves or are viruses never spread by simple e-mails that don't have attachments?

BTW, I do still have my own onboard AV of course.

An Email is largely a text message, although 'bits and pieces' like clip-art can be included. As far as I know, 'they' have not found a way to send a virus by this means.

That's what I thought, thanks for confirmation graham.

Note - The Fortnight JavaScript worm exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft VM ActiveX which makes it possible for malicious code to execute just by reading an message in an HTML aware email client. In other words, unlike many other viruses that travel via email, the user does not have to open an attached file to activate the virus
