    please be very careful opening an e card,
    i opened one a few days ago, and it infected my computer
    it did go into spam, but as i happened to be expecting one as a thank you card I opened it
    and CRASH
    took my husband and son hours to fix it,
    and thank goodness we have Norton anti virus, or it would have been a lot worse.

    I have had quite a few of those recently so your warning is very timely; mine just get labelled as junk by Thunderbird.

    ... I would tend to agree Cole.

    But what do you do when you get them from good friends who are separated from you by thousands of miles and you so rarely see? Sad

    Use the post? Smile

    E-cards are a tad naff anyway. I have used them, but only when I couldn't possibly have posted the card in time for it to arrive on the date concerned.

    I've just started using Moonpig - I've been (fairly) pleased with their customisable card service... which enables, for example, you to upload a photo of your own.
