this is not a booty call

...even though I'm a little drunk.

email spoofy viruses, sucky or not?

sucky, definitely

Update your virus software, people. I'm getting bounce messages for mail I never sent.

FYI - you will NEVER ever get an email with an attachment from any address unless it is something I have told you I am sending either in a prior email or with [.jpg attached] in the subject line.

And really, except for a few people, I rarely just email out of the blue,(preferring to share my idiocy with the general public here on the blog) so if you get anything from this domain, especially with an attachment just delete it.

I think I'm ok.

Having a computer engineer for a hubby sure does have it's advantages...

Jen, I'm in the same situation - thank God my husband knows about this stuff or I would have been fried a long time ago. Geeks rule!

I have also been getting "mail returned" crap to people I've never sent anything to, and I rarely e-mail anybody here, and never with an "unsolicited" attachment. Just as a precaution I never open any attachments. Never. Ever. On Outlook Express you can have mail with attachments automatically sent to the delete file, so that's cool too.

I like that the Symantec page explains what email spoofing is.

I'm really happy with my host and server, and have had no virus problems at all since the upgrade. The server scans and stops it before it ever gets to me. Plus I have everything forwarded to my AOL address which displays just what type of file the attachment is without downloading it (one of the main reasons I continue to be a slave to AOHell), and unless it's an image file or something I am expecting I delete it at the server before it even downloads to outlook.
