""HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ADDRESS BOOK;
I learned a computer trick today that's really ingenious in it's
simplicity. I received it from a friend.
As you may know, when/if a worm virus gets into your computer it heads
straight for your e-mail address book, and sends itself to everyone in
there, thus infecting all your friends and associates. This trick
won't keep the virus from getting into your computer, but it will stop
it from using your address book to spread further, and it will alert you
to the fact, that the worm has gotten into your system.
Here's what you do; first, open your address book and click on "new
Just as you would do if you were adding a new friend to your list of
In the window where you would type your friend's first name, type in
AAAAAAA, Also use address [email protected]
Now, Here's what you've done and why it works: The name AAAAAAA will be
placed at the top of your address book as entry #1. This will be where
the worm will start in an effort to send itself to all your friends.
But, when it tries to send itself to AAAAAAA, it will be undeliverable
because of the phony e-mail address you entered.
If the first attempt fails (which it will because of the phony address),
the worm goes no further and your friends will not be infected.
Here's the second great advantage of this method: If an e-mail cannot
be delivered, you will be notified of this in your IN BOX almost
immediately. Hence, if you ever get an ! e-mail telling you that an
e-mail addressed to AAAAAAA could not be delivered, you know right away
that you have the worm virus in your system. You can then take steps to
get rid of it! Pretty slick, huh?
If everybody you know does this then you need not ever worry about
mail from friends. Pass this on to all your friends""
VoG™, thanks for that, I thought it would not be good idea.
