Was this an email from Cristine directly or via the list?

This is not advice that I have heard before. People will open 
emails/attachments anyway. Also, people sort their incoming mail in 
different ways, so who knows which email will be read first. This does 
not sound like good advice to me. Better to use software from a vendor 
who is serious about protecting their customers and/or use an 
up-to-date protection package.

Absolutely correct. We have seen this many times.
