I just got an email from [email protected] microsoft.com (with the space).. I was wondering if you think this is a virus? why would microsoft send me mail, with no text but an attachment? i never write to them, so its not like they're responding. anyways, thanks, greg

My spam filter service (online) caught two of them just today. Delete it.
If you can, filter that e-mail address to delete it upon reciept.

You don't really think microshaft wants to speak to the little people do you? Heck no, not without money being involved.
They will never contact you. Sometimes (very very rarely) they will answer a question, so unless you asked them one....delete.

Also, it couldn't hurt to give your friends a call and ask them to scan too, the worm got your e-mail address from somewhere...:rolleyes:

Punkass virus writers, I swear.
