      No problem. We usually don't have a problem with this sort of thing
      because only subscribers can post to the list and all new subscribers
      must be approved first. But viruses now can disguise themselves as
      coming from another email address, and it looks like this one disguised
      itself as one of our long-time list members. (Sharon, you may want to
      check with your domain host just to make sure their servers are not
      infected with anything). In any case, this is why most lists of this
      sort are set up not to allow attachments. Even if you get a message
      like this with an attachment intact remember to never open it. Just
      delete the message and you should be fine.

      Sure looks like a virus to me.

      And this is where we thank the owner for setting the list to reject
      attachments :-).
