To the list, so they don't blame nicole, as I've seen on other lists (or was it this one?) Nicole, you've got a virus! It affects your email when you open in so that every time you go on line, it randomly chooses addresses from your address list and emails itself out. Don't anyone open this. There is info on the web (somewjere - I don't remember the URL but a search for Happy virus should find it). It is fairly easy to fix, IIRC, and doesn't cause any real harm except for the annoying spam and any flames that may provoke. Aidan
