OT: Bad Emails

Hello guys. Most of you guys know me and know that I welcome private messages and emails. If I do not know you please do not send stuff to my email with attachments. #1: I'm not going to open the attachment if I do not know you from Adam. #2: This especially applies if my Antivirus program detects a virus in the mail that you sent me. You know who you are so I will let you come to Jesus and say you are sorry. If anyone is interested in knowing who tried to send me bad attatchments please feel free to Private Message me and I'll be more than happy to share. NORM

Re: OT: Bad Emails

Why would someone do that? Its too bad there are people who have nothing better to do than screwing others for no reason. Hopefully your computer is ok.

Re: OT: Bad Emails

Norm, keep in mind that there's a virus called Klez that's been around for a year or so, and it automatically sends itself to people's email addresses it finds buried in web page cache files and in their address book, so they miight not have intentionally sent it. You ought to shoot them back an email so they know they are infected, unless you really think they were trying to be malicious. That virus has about a million variants by now and it's been a PITA, mainly thanks to Microsoft and their insecure Outlook email program.

Re: OT: Bad Emails

Check the header information to see if it really came from that person - it's the Properties of the message.

Re: OT: Bad Emails

Sorry Norm, virus got my computer and was sending them out via cache files. Pissed me off, killed norton, disabled task manager, and spread like hell. Was left with option of reformatting.

If anyone gets messages just delete them, for your own sake.
