I had the old BTL account forwarding to my yahoo account, and when I go out there to try and stop it, there is nothing on their page to let me stop! This is ridiculous.

Just close the Yahoo account and open another. Better still, use Google, as it's POP3/IMAP friendly and Yahoo isn't (unless you pay them each year).

Great idea Peter, if it weren't for the fact that the yahoo email address is on thousands of business cards and flyers all over who knows where...and the problem is not the yahoo account. It's the old BTL account that I have forwarded to the yahoo account. I get nothing from the btl account anymore except for spam, and if BTL made it simple to use that account, I could just go and stop the forwarding.

I have a gmail personal account and I do like it. If I were to open another business GMAIL account, I would have to forward all of my Yahoo emails to it which would include all of the BTL crap that comes through on that one.

If a computer has this virus and you send an e-mail, is it contagious to the computers that you send???

I think so. A week or so ago when it first happened, a couple of people hit "reply all" and send a nasty message about cutting out the crap.....once that happened, then everyone got it again.

I think if you dont send to the "independent.cope" email address, you will be fine. In other words, I dont think it spreads, but then again, maybe Barnacle or BelizeGial could answer better because mine is forwarded from a BTL account to a Yahoo account, and I do not use the BTL account to send mail.

Get anti-malware software that scans outgoing (and incoming) emails. And scan your whole HD once a week. I take great care to exclude malware from my computer, yet my most recent scan showed things that got on there I know not how. A few years ago, when i wasn't so fastidious about malware, my computer was used to send out many thousand spam messages. I only found out when a recipient checked the IP address that had sent the messages and traced it to me. Turned out I had a Trojan which was seemingly innocuous when it got onto my machine and wasn't detected by the anti-malware software I used then (Norton - absolutely dreadful). Much later something triggered it. This is how many of these work.
