Uh, not an expert, but I'm thinking that yahoo and hotmail accounts may protect you. I got another one today: "Hi,MichShooter69,honey" Is there an NWillis on the board?

Yeah, I've been averaging about one a day of this crap. One of mine was "hello stevegino darling". Sending out a virus should be a capital crime. No joke. BTW, the name of the sender is irrelevant because the virus will emulate names from other peoples address books.

I had one today that Norton identified as KLEZ virus. It caught and quarantined it.

I got one a couple days ago supposedly from Lordtrader, who I've NEVER had any contact with(though I have envied him on occasion, lol). Was around 150K in size and titled something like "Klez Virus Removal Tools". Being the naive trusting sort that I am, I instantly deleted it without opening. [}:D]

I'm guilty as charged. Didn't know for 4 days as I just started a new school and have not been to the computer for a while. Picked up some free software from www.jumbo.com. It's a bitch to get rid of. Sorry about that. Charlie
