|Recieving giftsPage 1 of 1 |
|I receieved an email from a person who lives 1300 miles away from me in "florida canada" if there is such a place, and the email says "gift attached", do I dare open it? or will i get a virus? it worries me because why would someone wiht her profile, who lives so far away, write to an old man like myself?|

|If you open the email it will have one of the gifts you see on the top of your message when you are sending mail, attached. It is completely harmless. I have received them numurous times and I assure you there is no virus attached.|
Perhaps she was very taken with you and wanted to send a nice sentiment.

|It will look like this:|

That will be displayed at the top of the email and the subject will indicate (Contains Gift).

|The email said (contains gift). I believe that I replied to the email. It was after I replied to the email (from I nice gentleman that I had begun correspond with) when I went back and opened the email again that (contains gift) did nothing at all. Should I have clicked on the gift first and then respond to email? Thanks for any help.|

|How odd. It should have appeared above the body of the email. |
Perhaps click View All Correspondence and scan through the other messages to see if its there.

|I to have recieved 2 gifts, and they still have never appeared on my profile, and to think those members took time out and spent points to send me them, I am kinda annoyed. |

Only the gifts purchased with cash show up on your profile. Gifts purchased with points only show up in the email they were sent with.
