	To underscore Bill's advisory, I've gotten over a hundred
"replies" to messages supposedly sent from my domain, from email virus
software around the world.  This one's clever; the "From" addresses seem
to be made up of various names spliced together with my domain name, so
we can't even begin to figure out who might be infected.

Just to show you how serious this latest virus attack has been, I have
deleted probably 75-80 copies which were sent to the list and detained
by our filters. Make sure you do everything possible to protect your
systems -- this thing is apparently pretty nasty.
