<font color='#000080'>The current "biggie" viruses that are doing the round have the ability to "spoof" email addresses, some can spoof whole addresses, others (like MyDoom) use genuine domain names, but spoof the persons name.
Whenever you think you have a computer virus, or receive a message warning you that a virus is doing the rounds, or has been caught in a message to or from you, check out one of the leading anti-virus companies virus libraries.
(I work for McAfee, so here is the link to McAfee Virus Information Library (VIL))
Simple advise is keep your anti-virus software up-to-date (on average, McAfee release 2-3 updates per week, if you haven't updated recently, do it now!
