A friend received an email from [email protected] with an attachment which he saved to My Documents as instructed, but he can't open it or delete it. Since then his Norton anti-virus keeps coming up and saying it is having problems with an outgoing email although there is no outgoing email.

Is this a valid email address for MSN? Has he got a virus? Any ideas anyone?

It is probably a virus.

Norton has probably deleted it, but will require that you delete the outgoing mail in outlook express first.

I have not clicked on your link for obvious reasons. Don't know if there is a way to tell if it is a valid address. Did'nt your friend know who it was from before openening the attachment. Thats how these freeks send viruses.

Thanks Gaz 25. Now does anyone know why a valid email address should send an attachment that can't be opened or deleted (from within Windows)

  Old Shep 12:01 08 Jul 04

As it's valid he should e.mail them back and ask them what it was!!!
