May  I suggest Forte' Agent for mail on a Win box?  It is text based,
will let you inspect attachments/html in raw form, and will warn and
query you should you try to open an executable.  I've been using it for
2 years now and if there is a reason not to, I haven't run into it.  You
can download a free version called Free Agent.  I think the news reader
is crippled on the free version.  I don't know if it runs ads.

My mail will have to come through a Win machine for a while yet, so
Agent is my protection against hostile email.  I tried Eudora, but, for
some reason I can't recall, it didn't thrill me.
