Take note of this!!!!
  Presently people are having a big problem with a really intelligent
worm virus in Yahoo groups.This virus usually reaches a mail box some
way and then tracks the ids with the word "group"
and send mails with subject lines usually of a forward which is already
present in you mail box.

This virus is intellegent is becausee of two reasons
- It sends mails with virus to groups by searching for the
word "group" in its address book or inbox id's
- It takes the subject line of any mail with "FW:" in it and sends it
across to the groups and the sent mail is not even seen in the sent
items box.

Suggestions [generic for any virus infected mail box]

1) Create 2 mail ids in address book one with name: !0000
( so that it wil be the 1st contact, and should not enter any email
address for that)
and another with ID: [email protected]
this creates confusion to any normal virus in the first try of its
sending the mail itself!

2) Create another id in address book with id:
[email protected]
this will prevent the new virus from spreading to other groups
coz when it tries this id it restarts trying and will end up
in retrying for this id countless number of times thus preventing from
to some other mail box or groups.

This is a simple way of preventing viruses from spreading to other
mail boxes

Thanks a Lot for taking time to read this mail.
Forward it to all your friends, to avoid spreading of Virus and Worms!!
