Damn Viruses!
Downloaded e-mail a little while ago and Avast detected a virus in an incoming e-mail, something about my St. Nicholas page—the same "HTML" virus that it spotted in my domain pages. James was in the chair, so he told Avast to put the virus in the vault.

Damn. It killed every single message in my inbox, including ones I had with URL references.

I wonder if this is the same virus they were warning about on the news the other night. Supposedly it exploited a hole in Internet Explorer, but if it's an HTML virus, any message that comes in with HTML coding in it, like the Borders Rewards e-mails, is vulnerable.
