I would also add that people should start using the blind carbon copy
function of your mailer when sending mail to multiple recipients, rather than
tacking multiple addresses in the to: or cc: field. The newer worms are
searching your entire mail folder (and i'm sure hard drive is soon, if not
already,) for email addresses. As a result, they'll mail to any reference
they see...not just people you know. bcc will help alleviate that problem.
