Other email issues are more on the client side than the server side, taking advantage of a bit of social engineering combined with shortcomings in the client program.
For example, be warned that some email client programs when encountering an emailed file called something.doc.exe, will ask you if youd like to open something.doc (i.e., only listing the characters after the first period, not the second), and then proceed to gleefully launch a virus contained in the actual something.doc.exe, file when you say OK.
