Hey Rob,

Sounds like a Lotus Script thing.  Were you able to open the hoax up in
Designer and see a script?  Also, are you saying that Trend missed the
virus?

| 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).
