Your email program slows down

One of the fastest ways a virus can spread is by infiltrating an address book and sending itself to all of the email addresses contained therein. A mass mailing of such magnitude can bring the performance of your email program to a near-standstill.
Consequently, if you notice that it takes significantly longer to send and receive email messages, you should check for viruses. Don’t bother looking in your Sent or Sent Items folder for copies of the infected messages, though. Few viruses leave evidence there, indicating their dastardly deeds.
