Someone who e-mails you has the virus not you. The Klez virus
invades an address book and sends itself out, hiding were it came from
by forging an address from the address book as the from address.

Folks, I just received this, this morning. It is possible that the
email with the .txt attachment may be caring a virus. I highly
recommend that *everyone* (since we all post to the same list) do a full
scan and clean on your system, and specifically for this virus.
I never sent out an email such as they describe.
