In response to Steve Marak's message about the BadTrans virus:

I did get a message today that looked like it might have been this virus. Of 
course, I did not open the attachment. I did not even read the message since 
the email address had an underscore for the first character. I just deleted 
the thing as soon as it popped into my box. I did get the following 
information from the moderator of another list I subscribe to. He posted the 
details below:

<Just a quick note to beware of any messages which come from
an E-mail address proceeded by an underscore.

For example: _telewski@cpp.msu.edu

as opposed to: telewski@cpp.msu.edu

These files contain an audio file which contains the W32badtrans.B@mm

Would our listserve not even recognize any address with an underscore as 
being a subscriber? Is so, the message would not be processed and distributed 
to the list. Is this correct, Steve?
