I got a very strange email that seemed to be hinting and something space related, and the email certainly makes sense for that...

But nothing else did.

Thanks

I certainly recognize that address (well the first bit anyway), its either someone from here or one of the Yahoo groups (or maybe the newsgroups)

I'll hunt around for a bit.

I got the same e-mail. Its a virus -- don't open the attachment. I've gotten several other versions from other familiar e-mails with complete e-mail text in the body. This one referred to shipping a poster, right?

Well, looking through the collectspace archived messages I found out he is from here after all, with over 200 posts, so he is (or was) a regular. His name is John and he is from Cinncinati (or somewhere spelt something like that!)

Well John, seems you have a virus on your computer if you are reading this !

#$@!# I scanned it, but my virus detector picked up no virus. Damn damn damn.

It never really opened.

(and yes, same email, Robert -- which was a problem, since I collect Soviet space posters! ARGH!)

I received the same virus yesterday.

it freaked me when I open the letter. It had the message of "second contact for a poster. emailed on 11/4.

It then had my full name, house number and part street name. didn't click the attachment.

I gave my personnal address through an email about twice to another board member here.

I did not send it. honestly

I did wrote to another member here about the astronaut hall of fame poster. He agreed to pick one up at the 2002. My address was included with that email. this is over a year now.

This virus scans your conatct and e-mails and sends itself to every e-mail address that it can find, using your own e-mail address so people will open it. It will activate itself from the preview pane of Outlook express and Outlook. There are no visible signs that you have opened an infrcted file, it just starts replicating.
Ther are several Anti-Virus applications available, Norton, Mcafee, my personal favorite is Panda, it has found several that Norton missed. the website is: http://www.pandasoftware.com/
