Protection using VMs?
Am I right in thinking that using a Virtual Machine will give you full protection from any e-mail or website sourced malware? I'm assuming you don't do anything silly like exporting downloads and attachments to another computer or the host computer area. If all you do is read the e-mail or print it out, you should be fine.
At the end of the day, you just delete the VM then clone a fresh one from the 'pristine' one that is never actually used. (I've been playing with Virtual Box and am having ideas.)
