Thank you both; you have prevented ME from making the same goof!
Viruses, malware, and spoofs are getting more sophisticated all the
time.

Best to all,

Hi all,

Actually the email that came across as Mail Delivery Failure and had
"if
you can't read this message"

*is one of a variety of viruses* - not a real email delivery failure
messaage.

Do not click on those links if you get a mesage like that. It is not a
legitimate URL and actually redirects to a virus

If you are running up to date virus software it should catch it for
you.

To learn more about the virus called netsky.p look at
