    I am running Windows 2000 and using OE6 email client. I sent an email to a friend today and she wrote back saying that the message I'd sent her had an attachment named:

    Certification_.txt (265B)

    I did not attach anything to the message I sent her. Is this some sort of virus? I regularly do spyware, adware, virus scans, etc. It's weird that this is happening. I searched this attachment name on Google and found nothing that would suggest this is anything bad, but still it shouldn't be attaching itself to emails I send. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

    What antivirus and version are you running ? I seem to remember some old version of an antivirus adds stuff to outgoing emails saying that the email is certified clean.

    I am using AVG anti-virus free, version 9 (it's supposed to be the most recent version). Could that be it? It seems weird that it would add an attachment to each email I send out. Most of them just put a little message at the bottom of the email.

    Hey, another thing you might be able to help me on ... many times when I send out an email, it sends TWO messages instead of just the one. I am only sending once, so why would this happen? I've used either Thunderbird or OE6, and it happens with both of them.
