Hi all. I know there is a lot on virus, but I cant find anything on this one:
I have the latest update of AVG and it hasnt picked it up. Neither have any of the large corps that I sent the email to. Could it be that the admin at this email add is mistaken

From Symantec website they say it has various names: -

[email protected] [McAfee], WORM_MIMAIL.R [Trend]

but they list it as [email protected]

Jester2K - I sent out a query to a bunch of people via a web site (so not from my mailbox). One of the admin mails came back saying that I had the virus. But I dont know how the website sets its mail up. It did ask for my mail add, but I dont know if it has the abaility to actually generate it from my mailbox? Is it possible?

I don't know. Was it a form or did a Outlook (Express) window pop up?
