Subject: The Rampaging Virus That's Going Around


Hi All,

I don't know if this is helpful at all but... it turns out that
a majority of the e-mail being generated and circulated by this
pernicious virus has a limited number of subject line headers!

What that means is; if you take the time to set up filters that
automatically trash any incoming mail with the following
headers, you will eliminate seeing 80 to 90% of the incoming
garbage in your "In" box.

**JUNK**
**JUNK**Test
**JUNK**Hi
**JUNK**HELLO
**JUNK**STATUS
**JUNK**STATUS OF SERVER
**JUNK** Mail Transaction Failed

There are other 'repeating' subject headers that lend themselves
to use for creating filters, do some homework on your own in-box
to find others. The ones I listed above are among the most
frequent repeaters. Create filters using those first. It'll
eliminate a ton of the electronic trash that this most recent
wave has inflicted on many of us. I'm getting virus loaded crap
in here at the rate of about half a dozen an hour. If I don't
empty my mailbox regularly, it'll get full and I won't be able
to receive business or other mail that I need or look forward
to.

Good luck, peeps!

John Velez
