A couple of years ago my email address became known to the "underworld" of people who send this kind of scam email. I was getting business proposals and sob stories almost weekly for more than a year. I asked a knowledgable friend who told me that in Windows Mail (and possibly other email software) you can see the content of an email without actually opening it. I had wanted to avoid opening suspicious emails because - to my limited skill - they can release viruses, etc. into your computer. Here's how:
1. Right click on the subject in your Inbox. DON'T click on Open, but at the bottom of the menu you'll see Properties.
2. Looking at Properties shows you the header, which may be a red flag for you.
3. Inside Properties you can also view Message Source, which includes the content of the message (like "I'm a foreign banker with a lot of money ...") .
With this method I was able to act on the email without the risk of infections and without the risk of discarding an email based only on the subject line.
