Yes, it is a "macro virus" it only activates when opened, and in this 
case only if you have the workgroups 97 or 2000 package. There should 
not be anything from the list, there is a filter at the mail gateway 
which rejects all incoming infected messages for the Melissa virus 
(this one) and the previous Happy99 virus.
