I have no idea--could you send me the original offlist? This is the  
first I've heard about it.

Oh, OK--nevermind. This looks like a virus to me--also the email  
address it takes you to is yahoogroups --sans dot.

Earthlink intercepted it with this message:

This email included an attachment which EarthLink identified
as containing a virus known as 1. Readme.zip: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

 This is about an email message Steve received and then
 posted to Fairfield Life.  Are you saying you didn't
 receive Steve's original post?

 It's message 75851 on the Web site if you want to have
 a look.

 What he posted is almost certainly a phishing
 or viral email.

 It isn't even in English:

 Your e-mail account will be disabled because of
 improper using in next three days, if you are still
 wishing to use it, please, resign your account
 information.

 For details see the attach.

 I hope he didn't open the attachment, or click
 on any links in the body of the email or the
 attachment, or, God forbid, reveal any of his
 personal information.

 Yahoo has an address to which to forward such
 emails.  He should forward it to:

 [EMAIL PROTECTED]

 If possible, he should reveal the headers in his
 email client before sending it.

 It's been used for virus sending before, and has probably be hijacked,
 because he was out of town the last time a virus was sent.

What has? I went to that message and it was sent by Steve Briggs, who's a
friend of mine here in Fairfield. Although I doubt he sent it. I emailed him
to ask if he was even using that email address.

 The virus sent it; it's the Beagle mass-mailing worm.
 It's probably gone to every email address the virus
 can find on his computer.
 
 Tell him he needs to do a virus scan on his computer
 toot sweet, and update his virus protection once he's
 cleaned things up.

I'll tell him, but he's on a Mac. I don't think he could get this virus.

 Huh.  Macs aren't vulnerable, according to Symantec.
 
 Well, *somebody* who posts here is infected.  Why would
 it come from Steve, though?

I just called Steve and he hasn't even looked at FFL in a long time, much
less posted to it.
