    We have received emails from employees where thier email address shows up as "[email protected]" instead of "[email protected]". They did not send this out, and the email contains some virus that crashed our Norton AV completely - NAV now says we need to completely uninstall & reinstall. I can't find anything on the web about a email worm/virus that adds "3D" to the front of the address of the sender. Does anyone have any info on it?

    I've received the same type of thing. A 3D in front of an email address. My isp intercepted this and said that it was trying to infect with the Netsky series of viruses.
    The email address was being spoofed just as spammers have learned to do. Norton has missed things before so I'm trying different anti-virus protections.
