Probably find that the guy that owns that e-mail did the same to someone else.

Forwarding as in they were being sent to [email protected] so I just setup web forwarding to forward any email to [email protected] to [email protected]

Those were the emails that automatically downloaded the virus as soon as you viewed them in the preview bit unless you had a patched system.

And what does forwarding the emails do? They still come to you originally...

I joined a newsgroup and soon after I started getting loads of emails that looked like Microsoft emails telling me to run the WindowsUpdate file attached to the email. Could easily have fooled some people. So I just forwarded all mail to that address to [email protected] - I really pity the person who has that address, I use it for all my fake forms and stuff.

Over the years I've become very jaded after many bad experiences with customer services, you have bucked the trend. Polite and efficient from the Freeola team, well done to all involved.
