Computer is fine. I downloaded a rogue that accessed my mailing list and replicated itself across the list. My fault for downloading the program. I have now secured the list so that if it happens again all e-mails sent out will be returned by the Hot Mail postmaster as undeliverable.

What I did: changed to I put the X on all addresses. Since there is no such address the mail is bumped back to me. If I write John I remove the X.


Very clever. I wish I had thought of that when it happened to me awhile back. I ended up just deleting my entire address book. I had fewer than 30 people in there anyway, and I almost never throw out messages so I can always find the address I want.
