    No. It depends on PC code that won't run on a Mac (unless you are using
    Virtual PC).

    I suppose you could forward an infected message to a Windows using
    friend, but that's not really the same thing.

    HTH,

    A virus is a computer program. Your Mac can not run PC computer programs,
    unless you are using Virtual PC. Ergo, your Mac can not get a Windows virus.

    Can you transfer a virus to another user? Sure--if you get an infected email
    and you hit the "forward" button and forward it to someone else. But it can't
    forward a virus unless you do it yourself.
