Actually, they can be, very simply.  Just don't run Windows.  (This not
only prevents you from originating them, it also prevents you from
falling victim to those others, less careful, send out.)

It's just that people aren't willing to do that.

Actually, it's probably enough to not run Microsoft email software,
though it's possible there are other user agents stupid enough to
execute `executable' attachments.
