    Does anyone know how I can fight back the incredible attack of "sober" worm emails I am getting on an hourly basis? I must get over 200 emails a day with this worm as an attachment.

    Of course I just delete the things; but, how can I stop 'em from coming? I use outlook express - but I can't see a fix in there.

    Help most appreciate.

    Happy Holidays!

    Hire an assassin to whack the virus writer as he exits his moms basement.

    Make a rule to delete the e-mail. Delete all the attached File Named. 'sober file' or delete e-mail with 'sober subject text'

    Here are some details on the sober virus.
    PM Me if you need help with creating rules.
    Good luck,
    Doug
    Thanks,
    Doug

    Quick update... I couldn't get the rules to work as I hoped in outlook. But, I downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird and after setting the rules there - I never see these dumb things again.

    Thunderbird really rocks!
