Misguided friends who use AOL

:blink: I am so frustrated with several of my friends, who use AOL. Thank God I never fell into the trap when I bought my first PC, about 7 years ago. My main gripe? Whenever I receive an email from any of them, it is ALWAYS an attachment, and I have to click numerous (as many as 8 to 10!!) times to open it. (after it has been scanned twice by my antivirus software, of course). It has come to the point where I delete most of their emails without even attempting to read them. Can anybody tell me why their emails are always sent in attachment form? Is this just an AOL quirk? I keep advising them to dump AOL, but they refuse. Thanks to anyone who can answer this for me.
