Hi

Please be careful everyone, I have received about 10 e-mails today infected with the Mydoom.f virus.

AVG picked up on it so I am protected (unless I am stupid enough to open one of these e-mails). Which I am not going to.

BE CAREFUL

It was well known that the followup version of the virus was due.

It's yet another reason to ensure that the Preview Pane in Outlook Express is PERMANENTLY disabled....:-)

Thanks for the info, i will disable the preview pane NOW.

Using OE6 but can't find preview pane to disable-- not looking hard enough? But can anyone advise where to locate? Thanks.

My instructions apply to the Outlook Express progam, left click on view then left click on layout (in the dropdown menu), and then remove tick from "show preview pane" . Of course if it's allready disabled it'll be greyed out. Hope this helps.
