As the UK Z register users already know this, I apologise to them, but heres a hint for the rest of you:
If you get an email with an attachment that looks in ANY WAY suspicious, DO NOT OPEN IT! Scan it first with an up-to-date virus scanner, or email the person that sent it asking if they *really* sent it.
Attachments to look out for include "list.doc" (the macro virus that Tom M is warning about) and 'Happy99.exe' which was inadvertantly emailed to all members of the UK Z register last week.
Just my usual ramble.
