Hi all

I've just discovered the problem with the attachments sent (probably inadvertently) via birding-aus. I have blocked that account, that account name, the attachment type etc. Sorry if any of you were infected by these messages. Please remember that Birding-aus messages


Delete ANY that do, even if they SEEM to be from regulars (a couple of them are infected too).

The filters have also picked up a few other attachments in the last day or so (and these looked to be "innocent" ones - including a short movie clip). Can I be boring and repeat:


That should also imply that you NEVER OPEN ATTACHMENTS from birding-aus, or even read the messages carrying them. User beware, and so on.

Thanks for the good work put in by Jon Wren, Tony Russell, Laurie Knight and Bob Inglis, and others. I've notified IPX so they can speak to the originating account holder and help them fix their system if it is an innocent error - as it appears to be.

Be careful out there...
