Re: [IPk] Virus info email



Hi John


I wasn't sure how the email came to me, it had IPk in the subject line but
came straight into my inbox.  I recognised Abigail King as someone from the
this list.  My virus checker stopped it but I didn't know if she had other
list members addresses in her address book from this list.

I wrote to her as well.
