    I think it was not intentionally sent virus. The virus automatically sent it.

    Are you sure the virus didn't intend to send it?

    Have to ask the virus whether he or she or it send it intentionally. I used to receive 600 spams a 1st thing I am awake and open the mailbox. I finally give up and install RBL , Spamassassin, anti virus all over the place still have about 30-60 left each morning but zero virus

    Got my first reply to one of these today :

    Why has my account been disabled? The last site I visited was MT Daily and I got a strange message when I visited that site like it was a popup window or something. I don't do anything that is dishonorable and I don't rules. Let me know what is going on?

    I don't have to look for trouble. It seems to know pretty much all the time where I am.

    Turn on SpamAssasin and Clamv (or other)
    I used to get quite a few of those, but not anymore

    The majority of spam is caused by the so called anti-spammers. (Fact)

    Care to explain? I have yet to get offered Viagra by an anti-spammer...
    Oh, and please offer proof, since you claim it's fact? Thanks!

    Somehow, Netsky got onto my PC. I

    Anyway, thanks to NAV, I was able to see 100s of mails being sent of my PC! Some of them ending up in my inbox as well.

    The internet is ridiculous, sometimes.
