In case you don't know about Mahir, you can find out all about
I'll be updating my PC-Pine page soon to include info about
avoiding malicious attachments. I've already got some info here:
All suggestions are welcome.
From what I've read, it seems to me that if a PC-Pine user
received ILOVEYOU.TXT.vbs and double clicked on it, it would've
destroyed files on the PC, changed the registry, etc. Does anyone
know of a PC-Pine user that ran ILOVEYOU.TXT.vbs? What about
users of other Windows non-Outlook mail clients like Eudora?
Thanks for any info,

When are you departing for Turkiye, Nancy?
