over the past week I've recieved eight emails with attachments that contain viruses. is this normal, or do you all think I've pissed someone off? they're all from different addresses and most of them are variants of the NetSky virus. i'm using outlook express with mailpenguin (www.mailpenguin.com) as my mail imap server. any ideas?

The last few months have yielded more E-mail virus activity than the whole last year, according to Symantec.

Virus like Netsky have something like 20 versions now only in a short time.

I suspect that this will get worse and worse, given the last few months.

Most likely, someone you know that has your e-mail address in their address book is infected with this virus. I have been seeing the same problem, still trying to track down the culprit.

damnit, three more this morning. they are increasing like no tomorrow. i've got norton sys works 2003 and it will block viruses in emails, but it is a memory hogging little biotch. can you all think of a lesser (free and small) mail scanner because this is ridiculous. thanks!
