Hotmail viruses are like emails that for e.g your contact (or friend) opens a spam email (nicked named hotmail virus, as it mainly happens there), that has weird titles like: "wooow!" or check this. When they click it, it redirects the page to some awkward site. When you try and login again, Hotmail will tell you that your account may be hacked (as they got your password from clicking the link). Then this virus automatically sends the virus email (the wooow email) to all the contacts, so the cycle begins.

Okay thanks. What do you mean by hotmail viruses?
I'm considering switching to Gmail. Any thoughts?

And yeah, gmail is a good idea, its much safer imho. Personally i use Hushmail (free & very very secure for web-based email, and thunderbird for my desktop )
