I recieved a v.wierd 'virus' in my Hotmail inbox. It musta been from someone either on this board or (the board where all the old mods went), as I only used my hotmail addy for trading...

Anyways, this 'virus' was a script sent in an email with no from address and no subject. It came in at 0k so I thought it was safe on to delete it (I use OE5 for all my mail BTW with Norton pre-scanning ALL my mail), so I did the usual, didn't open it just highlighted and hit delete... BIG mistake!

This 'undetecable' script/virus-whatever, deleted the main *.dbx/*.ods file for OE, meaning OE would crash on opening and cause all sorts of invlaid page faults etc etc... and the only solution was to manually delete the registry entry: "convert to dbx" so when I reboot OE it would create a new one, meaning I lost my entire mailbox!!!!!!!!

So be on the lookout folks...

I went away for 2 weeks and came back to the same 3 as you bluemoonbaz. 1 was from someone on another forum who i have dealt with in the past so he probably does'nt know he is sending it. Trouble is that it was attatched to a list and i opened it.
