    Be warned... I had a virus invade my puter and it got sent out to anyone I have had contact with over the past few months. If you get an email from me with nothing in the subject line, delete it immediately.

    The newest update from Norton will catch it and quaranteen it, however unsuspecting people may inadvertantly open in and allow it to proliferate.

    My apologies to anyone that got that virus message.

    To avoid spreading computer viruses, create a contact named !0000 in your email address book with no email address in the details.

    !0000 will always be the first contact in your address book.

    If a virus attempts to do a "send all" on your contact list, your pc will put up an
    error message saying: "The Message could not be sent. One or more recipients do not have an e-mail address. Please check your Address Book and make sure all the recipients have a valid e-mail address."

    In the past JAA would help us, now he's trying to kill our puters.;)

    I guess its a good thing we haven't emailed in a few months. I didn't get it.:blob3:

    Good Idea Plymouthvaliant, I have that contact in my Addy Book ;)

    Another good thing is get the lastest 2002 Norton Antivirus program, it checks for viruses even on outgoing email.
