Welcome to the world of SPAM.

You can just delete them. Make sure your preview pane is not open, View/Layout make sure 'Preview Pane' is unchecked (assuming you use OE).

You could try one of the many Anti Spam programs, I use Spamweed. Others will recommend their favourites.

Most viruses will be found in the attachment, but some new variants and other nasties are in the main body of the message so best to only open email from expected people, and always save attachments and scan with your AV software before opening.
