Hi Joe,
I seem to recall mine said similar. It is likely just a standard message
that is sent because most viruses contain an attachment. The virus
identification it mentioned is because the terminology matches the pattern
of that virus.
If you choose to evaluate it let us know what you find.

  I could except that Pam, however the message indicate that it contains an
attachment and the ISP.s message identifies the virus  as Exploit-MIME.gen.c
,whatever that is. The original message is quarantined on my ISP's system. I
could have it downloaded for evaluation if someone is interested. I do not
know enough about this sort of thing to even know that downloading will be

    Interesting, Joe.  I suspect it is because of some of the wording in
this email. Scott and I played with a similar situation a month or 2 ago
where every time he sent a particular email to the group I got an alert. We
took it off list, experimented and learned it was some text in the email
that caused the false alert.
