Re: [NTO] viruses
- Hi Len,
I have been getting hit with 50-100 of them a day from my Fookes
Software support addresses. As you might think, a number of
people have the addresses in their addressbook... For quite
awhile I would download headers only and delete the ones that had
the worm attached. I do not get to many now. I suspect they are
being deleted at the server level so the Internet is not bogged
down as much, but I still notice a long period of downloading. I
had a reply ready to go for all the ones that were infected which
might be part of why is has slowed down tremendously after the
first two weeks.
