Fw: [Fwd: Neat Virus Stopper Trick]

Subject: FW: [Fwd: Neat Virus Stopper Trick]

   I  haven't tried this but being someone who has been "HIT" before, it sounds well worth the extra couple of seconds it might take to set it up.
Hi All,I did this and have had no hits so far, but what the heck, whatever works...Try this to further insulate your address book from virus incursions: Trick your address book! 

Who among us doesn't know someone who has experienced the embarrassment
of unknowingly spreading a computer virus via their  email address book?

It's time to STOP this from happening by TAKING CONTROL of your email
program! For those who are unaware, many computer viruses spread
themselves by sending themselves to everyone in your address book.  Imagine
how you would feel if you were unknowingly infected with a computer virus,
and worse yet, your friends, family, and business contacts were being
targeted by your computer!  Well, if you want to avoid this sort of thing,
here's a great tip:

This tip won't prevent YOU from getting any viruses (you have to scan
those  attachments yourself before opening them to do that), but it will
stop those  viruses from latching onto your address book and sending itself
out to others.

To avoid spreading computer viruses, create a contact in your email address
book with the name :
** !0000 
with no email address in the details.

This contact will then show up as your first contact. If a virus attempts
to do a "send all" on your contact list, your pc will put up an error
message saying that: "The Message could not be sent. One or more recipients
do not have an e-mail address. Please check your Address Book and make sure
all the recipients have a valid e-mail address." Your messages to an
individual or individual addressees  will not be affected. You click on OK
and the offending (virus) message would not have been sent to anyone. Of
course no changes have been made to your original contacts list.  The
offending (virus) message may then be automatically stored in
your "Drafts" or "Outbox" folder. Go in there and delete the offending
message. Problem is solved and virus is not spread.
