Hi Steve,

You do have a sense of humor....I think I will pass on the virus you mention....I think Glenn already told me about this being a hoax.  I have enjoyed hearing what you have to say about computers....You have alot of knowledge and I believe background in computers....Thanks for explaining what happens....I have Norton's and I keep it updated....I have been considering what you said in former emails about Norton and these other two McAfee, Trend Micro's PC Cillin...MY Norton's automatically does it for me....You suggested looking into the other two.  Which I have been looking into...This was mentioned to me by a friend.  I will forward this email of your to him which explains why it won't work....Thanks......Rob

  I do have a collection of virus.  Would you care to test this trick out?

  Not only does it not work, it plain doesn't work.  What will happen is that
  MAPI enabled malware will send out a message with that address, and the
  message will come back saying that no transport is available, or a similar
  message depending on your program, while the program will continue to send
  out messages to the rest of your address book.  Also, many of these malware
  programs not only use the address book, and some skip that entirely, but
  they search other sources for email addresses, like your browser caches,
  your mail storage files, etc.

  I'd suggest you don't--get a good anti-virus program,, I personally
  recommend NAI's McAfee or TrendMicro's PC-Cillin, and make sure it is kept
  updated.  Both can do it automatically for you.  Also, for those of you who
  do not yet have an anti-virus program on your machines, go to
  http://www.antivirus.com and click through to their free online virus
  scanner.  The site is run by TrendMicro, and works best (unfortunately) with
  Internet Explorer.
