How do I scan a suspicious e-mail while it's in my in-box?
It depends on your AV program.You can with some,and cannot with others.You can try to use a free scan online from places like http://www.pandasecurity.com/

Poor security to have the Preview open. With Netscape, click and drag the "thingy" in the middle of the diver bar,all the way to the bottom. Now you can highlight the header,right click and delete. You can also make sure that you do not get it back by selecting to delete it from server from your preferences.

I will be surprised if you did not let it loose, so it is not a bad idea to get a clean up file,available at almost any web site. By the way, I could find Nimda virus/worm and Klez ones but not a combination of the two.
You have to keep up with the IE critical updates, with your AV updates, stay away from attachments, and any mail which does not sound right.And,do not use Microsoft applications My wife received an e-mail from someone who she never heard of , who was saying that she was sending out viruses, and an alleged quotation, with an attachment. She immediately deleted. Very wise,because when I described it it was immediately identified as a variant of Klez.
Another thing, if you are prevented from going to AV sites, you most likely got it. Let me know how things are,here or direct.
