The W32.Sobig virus is really making the rounds right now. Do NOT open any mail that has an unknown RE: in the subject. These are mostly being propagated unwittingly by large corporations' emplyees opening them. Most notably:
Re: Your Application
Re: Wicked Screensaver
Re: Your Details (or Re: My Details, or Re: Details)
Re: That Movie
Re: Thank You!

Another is the Mail Delivery Subsystem "Returned Mail, Service unavailable " e-mails. I got five at work and eight at home. DELETE 'EM.
