Well, first of course is that nobody writes programs for the Mac, right?

buying a Mac for a use related to the newsgroup. So since nobody is writing
for the Mac, no problem, with the sole execption of Microsoft macros.
I'm not sure how effective it is, but in preferences -> viewing, I have not
checked the box that says display images and embedded objects in HTML
messages. My understanding is that this shows me only the text of an HTML
message. Better, I almost always read email ssh'ed into a Linux server
using mutt. Since it's completely text, I get to see whatever nastiness the
Windows users have been hijacked to send out to other Windows users with no
effect on my Mac.
I think your biggest problem is getting email with Microsoft macros in Word
or Excel doents that you open. I don't use MS products (with the
exception of a copy of MSIE that I keep for lunkheads that do web pages
that are internet explorer only), so I don't even worry about MS macros.
