Re: viruses - just a reminder

If you get an attachment that you think has a virus, you might be able
to find out who sent it to you (most likely unaware that they did so).
You have to open the full headers of the message. In Netscape, just
click on View, Headers, All. You will see many lines of numbers and
abbreviations, and you may see the address of someone you know. See the
example below (I changed my friend's real name to "fakename" to protect
the innocent). You would be doing them a favor by letting them know
what they probably unwittingly sent. Also remind them to never open any
attachment from anyone, unless they know exactly what the attachment
contains. Simply knowing the sender does not make it safe to open
