It's not from me. Don't forget: it's almost 100% guaranteed these days that
when you receive a virus, the one address you know it *didn't* come from is
the one shown in the From: line.

Forged, forged, forged

I'd like to see how a Linux mutt user like myself got infected with a
WINDOWS virus...

If you think you've got it bad. I've just come back from vacation to find
a 1,000 AV alerts in my Inbox from all around the world... I have more AV
alerts than SPAM... (life is tough)
