In case any of you have missed the warnings, the "I Love You" virus appears to be a very real, very nasty bug! Do not open any email with "I Love You" in the subject line. Mark just got home & told me they were hit at the company he works for, and their entire email system is down, and no one knows how long it will take to fix the problems. It was opened by one person, went to their address book & forwarded ITSELF to everyone in that book, then went to each recipient's book, and so on. Mark received 4 separate emails with that in the subject line, but deleted them promptly. Then the whole system crashed. So I know for a fact that this one is real.
Hope this saves someone in Mohicanland from grief!
