    Correct, you don't need to do anything... because the virus will do it all
    for you.

    ok, i've been getting these annoying things in my mailbox for months.
    i get about 9 a day and they are 142k, so they fill it up fast...

    my question is, who the hell is sending them and how did they get my
    e-mail address and what makes them think i'd open something microsoft
    sent me???

    People with virus infected machines will be sending them out to any email
    address they can find either in their address book or on newsgroups that
    have been read on that machine.

    As your email address eidetic_vilbel@yahoo.fr is clearly visible then you
    will get loads of them.

    If you had spamtrapped it you would get far less and possibly none , but now
    teh damage is done.
    You may as well get a new email address.

    They all come from slightly different email addresses and as fast as
    you block them more arrive from different addresses.

    Mark for deletion all messages with the words "microsoft", "security patch",
    "critical upgrade", etc. I did this for the word "urgent", in response to all
    those Nigerian numptys writing about dead relatives who were loaded.

    After all, how often does someone you know email you and write "URGENT!!!" in
    the subject header? Not very often.

    I have *one* procmail filter set up which blocks *all* of them:

    :0
    * > 140000
    * < 165000
    {
    :0 BD
    * b3IAAABBZG1pbgAAAEdFVCBodHRwOi8vd3cyLmZjZS52dXRici 5jei9iaW4vY291bnRlci5naWYv
