3634RE: [albanach] E-mail account security warning.
- Apr 6, 2004No 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.
