A few messages have come through to list subscribers recently that didn't have proper headers. One of them claimed to be from Chad Morland, but using the address [EMAIL PROTECTED] (which is an invalid address).

It looks like the machine at adsl-b3-72-36.telepac.pt ( is infected with an email virus/worm that is reposting messages to subscribers of the list directly. Some of them are just simple re-posts (like the "Queue not delivered" message from Julio Espada Olivares that was originally sent May 12, 2003). But the resend from Chad Morland included a virus attachment.

Keep an eye out for the messages, they'll include a received header like the following, and won't have proper mail list headers.

Received: from NetClube05 ([]) by fep01-svc.mail.telepac.pt
(InterMail vM. 201-253-122-122-113-20020313) with SMTP

And, if you're the subscriber to [EMAIL PROTECTED] that happens to have as your IP address -- scan your system with an up-to-date virus checker!
