Anyone know if this is another virus or worm hoax? I got it, but haven't opened it.

Thanks
John

I think that is probably genuine, I have had several simlar emails from survey site & take part in a few of them when the fancy takes me.

Best way to check if you are using OE is to right click the email,/properties/details/message source, that gives you a plain text version to look at

Hi John,

I can't say for sure, but it does come from a M$ server if that helps.

Go here and click a few of the links and see where they go. You'll stay inside Sam Spade while you're doing this, and it will let you peruse the code via their SAFESITE doodad.

http://www.samspade.org/t/dns?a=surveysite.com

which then links (among others) onto...

http://www.samspade.org/t/refer?a=209.207.154.176

You'll probably find the info you need to choose from here, but I can't say whether it could just be a very clever hoax???? :)

Hope that helps,

Cheers

Liam

Thanks to both of you! :D

Derek, I knew that trick, but didn't dig into it too much!
Probably is safe, but seemed suspicious with those others lately.
