reading e mail without opening it

I used to be able to read my e mail without opening it to lessen the chance of getting a virus from an unknown source, now comcast changed the e mail program and I would like to know if it can still be done, I can't figure it out.

Get Mailwasher. The free version will work. You can set it up to fetch your email (it won't actually download from the server unless you tell it to). You can then see what's in the email without fear of a virus.
