Well, the way to train users not to open malicious e-mails is by labelling 80% of them as SPAM.

Then, if they open one of the other 20%, because they trust that you are looking after them, it's their fault for getting infected, not yours.

You want to stop e-mail scams?

0. Set the default option for opening e-mails to plain text.

1. PUT UP A F***ING BIG NOTICE ON EVERY WALL, telling people to not open e-mails that they're not expecting.

There you go: 99% of the hacking problems solved, before they even begin.
