    I had a friend send me an email that said, "I can't open this email you sent me." I never sent an email to them. The subject line was
    #NET Folder# Snchronization.

    What is that? Do I have a virus. I scan each day.

    It's likely someone in his/her address book is the source. Not to mention lousy spellers :)

    Update your anti-virus definitions, run a full scan and suggest your friend do the same. If you're still not convinced, run an online virus scan:

    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm

    See if your friend can find the source of the email and have him report it to his/her ISP.

    Here's how to view the Email header data:

    Eudora, double click the message. Then click the blah blah button.

    Microsoft Outlook, double click the e-mail. Click View/Options.

    Microsoft Outlook Express, click the e-mail. Click File/Properties and select the details tab.

    Netscape, click the message to open it. Then click View/Message/Source

    Have him/her cut and paste that, email to his/her ISP abuse team.
