    the only reason I posted it was because the email looked like it came from LinkShare. to me, this is a new gambit and I figured I'd better mention it.

    McAfee caught it; made me happy.

    I NEVER open attachments from anyone... I always ask them to send inline and they do, too risky! Did you have an application in to them at the time you read the mail?
