    I get one of these every day (everything between asteriscs). any one know the virus I should go after? I keep Norton updated but this keep coming.

    Or am I clean and it is stopping some things coming at me?

    I can't read the headers to know.

    It appears that my username @ my local host is sending to me ([email protected]). The problem (spammer or virus) seems to be [email protected]

    Thanks, Frank

    Please only post your question once and in one forum. It is confusing otherwise.
