My at home PC is using a cable modem to get into work via VPN.

When I am NOT attached to work I use outlook to view my email from my ISP.
 I have no one loaded into my outlook address book.  When I AM attached
into work I use Notes to read my email from work.  Well, I've had my work
account for a long time thus I do get some personal mail that way.  One of
these mails, from a relative, had a hoax in it.  You can go here to read
the hoax:
http://www.snopes2.com/rumors/perfume.htm
I did not open any attachments in the email.  Just opening the email
started stuff.

I read the email.  Researched snopes for the hoax and sent a reply to the
sender that it was BS.  Then I tried to exit out of the received email and
that screen which asks you to send, send and save, save, or discard came
up.  The was the first red flag - I didn't pull it up in edit mode.  I
selected the option to discard.  However, it still changed the sender in
my inbox from the relative to me.  This was red flag #2.  So I checked my
sent box and there was nothing in there.  Ok.  So I checked the log.nsf on
the server for mail routing events.  BANG.  This email got sent out to
everyone in my address book.

Our email goes through one in point, and this one runs Trend's antivirus.
Then it gets routed to the various email servers.  The email server I am
on, (of which I am the only user) is not currently running Trend.  And the
virus protection on the PC hadn't been updated in awhile because it is set
to synchronize with work, and since I am VPN, you have to tell it to do
it.  At work, it just does it.  I ran the sync right after the email -
(yes I know that's a little late).

I am thinking of reporting this to Trend via their website when I get back
home tonight.
