The reason that email scams work is that people fall for them... there is no way for them to be dangerous on their own.
educate yourself, be aware, and don't do idiotic things like give your banking info to someone who claims to want to give you 2% of a hundred million dollars! If you don't know that certain emails (or the web links contained in them) are scams, you probably shouldn't be on the internet at all.

Yeah, and as soon as you make something idiot proof, sure enough, someone will invent a better idiot.

The problem is, we lack "something better" to abandon email for.
There's a neat little invention by Alexander Graham Bell that looks promising.

The model would have to be something web-based, like Yahoo! Mail with superior spam filtering and accessible by devices that can't normally browse web pages.

The company I work for maintains it's own email servers, and I rarely need to go out side the system. Only a few times per month. In the last three years I only receiveed two juck e-mails.
My account at home only accepts know senders.
You can avoid unwanted e-mails.
...telnet, ftp...were "abandoned" years ago.
Huh? I use them every danged day.
