      For what it's worth: Please review this and consider doing it. Thank
      you to the person who started sending this around.

      Do you really know how to forward e-mails? 50% of us do; 50% DO NOT.

      Do you wonder why you get viruses or junk mail? Do you hate it?
      Every time you forward an e-mail there is information left over from
      the people who got the message before you, namely their e-mail
      addresses & names. As the messages get forwarded along, the list of
      addresses builds, and builds, and builds, and all it takes is for
      some poor sap to get a virus, and his or her computer can send that
      virus to every E-mail address that has come across his computer. Or,
      someone can take all of those addresses and sell them or send junk
      mail to them in the hopes that you will go to the site and he will
      make five cents for each hit. That's right, all of that inconvenience
      over a nickel! How do you stop it? Well, there are two easy steps:

      (1) When you forward an e-mail, DELETE all of the other addresses
      that appear in the body of the message (at the top). That's right,
      DELETE them. Highlight them and delete them, backspace them, cut
      them, whatever it is you know how to do. It only takes a second. You
      MUST click the "Forward" button first and then you will have full
      editing capabilities against the body and headers of the message. If
      you don't click on "Forward" first, you won't be able to edit the
      message at all.

      (2) Whenever you send an e-mail to more than one person, do NOT use
      the To: or Cc:columns for adding e-mail address. Always use the
      BCC:(blind carbon copy) column for listing the e-mail addresses. At
      least one address has to appear in the "To" field, so type your
      address. This is the way that people you send to only see their own
      e-mail address and yours. If you don't see your BCC: option click on
      where it says To: and your address list will appear. Highlight the
      address and choose BCC: and that's it, it's that easy. When you send
      to BCC: your message will automatically say "Undisclosed Recipients
      in the "TO:" field of the people who receive it.

      (3) Remove any "FW:" in the subject line. You can re-name the
      subject if you wish or even fix spelling.

      (4) ALWAYS hit your Forward button from the actual e-mail you're
      reading. Ever get those e-mails that you have to open 10 pages to
      read the one page with the information on it? By Forwarding from the
      actual page you wish someone to view, you stop them from having to
      open many e-mails just to see what you sent.

      Have you ever gotten an email that is a petition? It states a
      position and asks you to add your name and address and to forward it
      to 10 or 15 people or your entire address book. The email can be
      forwarded on and on and can collect thousands of names and email
      addresses. A FACT: The completed petition is actually worth a couple
      of bucks to a professional spammer because of the wealth of valid
      names and email addresses contained therein. If you want to support
      the petition, send it as your own personal letter to the intended
      recipient. Your position may carry more weight as a personal letter
      than a laundry list of names and email address on a petition.

      So please, in the future, let's stop the junk mail and the viruses.

      Finally, here's an idea!!! Let's send this to everyone we know (but
      strip my address off first). This is something that SHOULD be forwarded.

      Or, you can simply copy and paste the message in a brand new email
      like I just did!
