Is anyone using pop 3 accounts within your network?

I'm being alerted to W32/Netsky-B worms trying to run in my domain.  My
workstation level AV is stopping the virus from running so it's not yet
a terrible problem.  However I'd like to know how these messages got in.
We've SMTP AV scanning at our gateway, and no sign of the message
passing through.  However the message is residing in the Inbox/ Deleted
Items of users mailboxes, with evidence of the unzipped file in
Outlook's temporary area.  I know this worm will spoof the address of
the sender, but surely I should still this spoofed 'From' address in my
gateway SMTP logs?


If anyone can explain how this may be getting in, I'd be extremely



Many Thanks,
