Hi all,

You may have noticed a marked increase in virus alert e-mails over the last couple of days. Global IT have informed me that they have tracked the source of the majority of the mails to a registration domain which stores e-mail addresses harvested from forums, messenger and/or simply e-mail traffic. Apparently the virus refers to this database and spoofs the addresses to perpetuate itself across the internet.

In order to remove your e-mail addresses from this database, I would please ask you to do the following?

1. Save any work you are currently in the middle of
2. Close all programs apart from Outlook
3. Click on the following link below?
4. Select the section marked "You don't know? E-mail address database
5. Scroll through until you find your address, then right-click and select "remove from listing"

Link to database - Link

This should then almost entirely remove the virus e-mails you have been receiving over the last few days.

Thanks for your help.

Someone is going to kill you over than link.

that is awesome..........:beer: spherrod :D

Wow that was a really stupid prank.

Now you'll have to send out a followup email and your entire department is going to look idiotic.

Even as an IT guy I don't really find any humor in this. :(

A funnier joke would have been:

"Due to the increased cost in email management, i.e. upgrading servers, blocking spam, scanning viruses, etc. We have decided to shutdown email services. Research has shown a higher return on investment if every employee was given his/her own fax machine, and all correspendence occured via fax transmission."

Now THAT'S funny! :)

Didn't you read the original post? He's an IT GUY. This is probably the only telephone call he'll get (probably assuming that women will call only). He just needed to feel important.

Maybe if you had actually made the "new" email addresses FUNNY, it would have been taken for what it was.
