I got the same message (for the first time) at 4:41 p.m. on 1/29/01.
The "To:" field was empty. I suspect it is somehow related to my
being subscribed to the seaint listservice although there was no
seaint trailer or any other direct indication that it could be
associated with the listservice.

The snow white email I received had the sender's address on it but
like all emails I receive, I can't tell if it came through seaint
unless it has the disclaimer at the end The name was obviously
something fake. When I used to use Microsoft Outlook, I remember that
it told me something regarding via seaint. Of course, the standard
seaint disclaimer at the end of the message was not there.
Interestingly, the attached file was a scipt file (.scr) which is
commonly associated with Autocad. I wonder that since I posted a
question regarding autocad yesterday that engaged the email to get
sent to me. I can think of no other way that my email was obtained
other than through the list somehow.
I will not go into detail as to the sender's name and the name of the
attached script file on the list because both are inappropriate to
repeat. However, If someone would like to privately email me who could
alert me to any virus type cautionary steps I should take, I would
