Looks like a typical email sent out by a worm... Don't worry about it. There is also probaly a 36-112kb attachment with the email. Just a note, it's not wise to open emails from unknown people when you see there is an attachment ;).

Thanks for the reply.

There was no attachment with the email.

Ran Trend Micro HouseCall online, and it found WORM_BAGLE.U
AVG came out clean.

There's a lot of strange emails going around now.

I've gotten ones like that, that say I sent an email and it is being returned (I don't know if it says I sent a virus, I don't open it)

I also get ones with a name like "Mary McGuire" or something and subject RE: your account, or "updating my email address" They all seem to be 2K in size, and I just delete them since I don't know the name.

Some kind of a worm, from what I've read...

So far, so good.

Did a couple of online virus scans, and they are all coning out clean.

Thanks for the info.

So far, so good. If something shows up again, will give Stinger a whirl.

Thanks much for the info.
