    is there someplace to send emails to see if they are infected with a virus? i kepp getting these emails that are 120k+ from people i dont know
    (subjects say like: winXP update) so i know i wouldnt normaly get the email anyway... and the first time i got one i opened it and it was blank... so im guessing its a windoze virus ..
    so is there any place to check this out b/c the hotmail virus checker doenst detect one and im pretty sure these are viruses

    use www.spamcop.net for reporting spam, but many times virus e-mails come from people's home systems, the virus reads their address book and sends you the virus.
