Yeah - maybe just to collect the replies.  Sometimes when a new Klez like
worm hits, people get virus attachments from my email address (but not from
me :)  I am amazed at how many people reply with "I had trouble opening it -
please resend it".  These are people who would have absolutely no clue who I
am, and they don't enquire, nor ask what it was I was sending them.
