    I just got a virus sent to me from the above e mail address. I know it is a forged address. It is difficult to determine who exactly sent it. I will paste the e mail in here, so maybe someone can track down where it came from.

    It was routed a few times to mask the original sender. It appears it came from an optonline.net address.

    I am going to remove the html code from it so the entire message and headers will display properly.

    This may seem off topic, but I don't want W.E. Chapps to get a bad rap for something they did not do. :)

    Thanks for the heads up to us and everyone in the LS community. Glad you detected that it was from an outside source and it did not effect your programs.
    Keep us posted to any serious funny business like that in the future.
